Priscilla Trevino
Yakima Schools Foundation
Term Expires 2021

Priscilla Trevino has felt a deep connection to the lower Yakima valley from the very beginning – she was born here, grew up here, and returned here after earning an Associates of Arts in Marketing from The Art Institute of Seattle. No other place has the same sense of contentedness; she says she “I don’t see myself ever leaving, or moving from the Yakima Valley. I am greatly committed to the community.”

That sense of duty is what has driven her to seek out and take a part in other organizations within the area; she is also chair of organization of the Downtown Association of Yakima and on the board of the Central Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Her initiative and values make her a strong ally for La Casa Hogar.

“La Casa is the epitome of what it looks like in action to transform lives, connect people and a community,” Priscilla says.

Eva Chávez
Lower Valley Credit Union
Term Expires 2023

“I enjoy using some of my free time to give back to my community. I joined La Casa Hogar’s board because in some ways I can relate to many of the students of La Casa Hogar. I’m a first-generation Latina immigrant who calls the Yakima Valley home. I can understand many of the struggles that students pass through such as adapting to a totally different culture and learning a second language. By being part of the board, I hope to provide my support directly and indirectly to the students to help them lessen those struggles. I believe that when people have a desired to get an education, society should provide the tools and resources to those people to achieve their goals. La Casa Hogar does that, provides educational support to the Latino community to continue reaching their educational goals, and I am excited to be part of that mission through the board.”

Juan Ramirez, MPH
Yakima Valley Farmworkers Clinic
Term Expires 2022

Juan Ramirez first heard about Yakima at a job fair while finishing a Masters degree at the University of Texas at El Paso; he had studied public health with the goal of working with underserved communities, especially in areas with large Hispanic populations. The Yakima Valley made an obvious new home for the recent graduate. A native of Lerdo, Durango, Mexico, takes pride in Yakima, saying “Here I am doing what I love.” Juan has helped further develop programs serving the Latinx community: adult chronic illness management classes, parenting classes, and a program that provides free books to young children when they visit the doctor.

Juan first heard about La Casa Hogar from a coworker and knew he had to be a part of it. “I am very excited to be on the board… Sometimes people in the (Latinx) community can demotivate themselves and can be afraid of the systems in place,” Juan says. “(At La Casa) it’s great how everyone comes together to accomplish big things… even though there is a lot of need, there are also a lot of people trying to help each other become stronger, healthier, and better.”
