We are community

We pride ourselves on being a community organization. Our community-wide events are not only enjoyable experiences but they also play a crucial role in fostering a sense of belonging and social support.


Regardless of age, gender, or cultural background, these events provide opportunities for people to come together, share experiences, and create lasting memories. 

For more than five years, we've been organizing events including festivals, dinners, cultural celebrations, educational gatherings and charity events. Please take a look at some of our event timeline below.

Family Events

We've organized more than 25 family events, bringing family members together for a day filled with fun, food, and prizes.

Chicago Youth Trip

We had an incredible opportunity to take 7 youth to Chicago for a weekend. Most of our youth have never traveled outside of San Diego county, out of state or been in an airplane. That made our trip so much special!

Padres Games

We have participated in numerous Padres games to express our gratitude to our volunteers. This serves as a way to foster team-building opportunities enhancing communication and relationships among the team members and volunteers.

Family Resources Events

We appreciate being invited to resource fairs, where we share valuable items such as food, diapers, and other necessities to support families in need.

Christmas Parties

Every year, we have the joy of bringing together over 200 families and community members to celebrate the holidays with tacos, presents, and enjoyable games!

We actively organize youth activities, such as fishing, nature exploration, amusement parks and museum visits. Our outings focus on fostering friendships, developing life skills, and modeling positive relationships to support personal growth.

Comunity Taco Dinners

Bringing people together through our love for tacos has the power to unite, encourage socialization, and foster a sense of belonging.
