Una Palabra

Una Palabra (one word) this  is our answer to better serve our growing population of Hispanic neighbors. The idea came from one of our youth when we went on a community walk. A baby swallowed a quarter and the frantic father could barely speak English. He flagged down our director and began trying to say a few words in English so she could understand. He eventually communicated that the baby had swallowed a coin and needed someone to call 911. Thankfully, the child survived the incident, but we knew we needed to know more Spanish in order to better communicate with our neighbors. Later a friend of the father told Tara that she could learn Spanish “una palabra un dia” or “one word a day”. Tara’s daughter, Tierra, heard the conversation and is now committed to teaching our CoreTeam and Volunteers one word of Spanish a day!!! She and Kamaria Cooper are enlisting other young people to help with this needed outreach. They will teach at our Volunteer and CoreTeam Meetings.
