Priscilla Trevino
Field Group
Term Expires 2020

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 connectedness; 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 ChavezEva Chávez
Lower Valley Credit Union
Term Expires 2020
“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.”
