The Adelante Award program is an initiative of Los Hermanos Familia which became a nonprofit organization in June 2014 and was established in 2008. The organization began with the annual, “Vamos a Pescar, Let’s Go Fishing” event, which uses fishing as a hook to bring families together, and is now preparing for additional initiatives to improve the quality of life for families in West Texas.

Some of LHF’s programs include the annual “Vamos a Pescar, Let’s Go Fishing” event that ignited the movement to impact families. Also, the placement of outdoor fitness equipment at Buddy Holly Lake is helping families and individuals to become healthy and have access to fitness equipment. LHF offers the MyOn Digital reading program free to any child – from kinder to high school. LHF also placed little libraries in areas where children might not have access to books or technology – visitors can take a book, leave a book. Los Hermanos Familia holds the Bilingual Financial Literacy Workshop annually in April. LHF provides scholarships to high school and college students to encourage retention and success. These are just a few examples, for a complete list please visit www.loshermanosfamilia.org/get-involved.
