Los Ojos de la Familia is organized and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. Assistance provided by the organization includes, but is not limited to, grants, scholarships, financial support, and maintenance of individuals and families in need throughout our community. We attempt to identify individuals through input provided by members of the community, members of the education system, and members of the organization—individuals who, without such assistance, would not be able to gain an education or trade, provide for the basic needs of their families, and become self sufficient contributors to the community. Financial need to stay within the educational system will be the primary criteria for which support will be provided. However, secondary considerations will be given to families whose current financial circumstances fail to offer opportunities and encouragement to improve and excel within the community. The broader objective is to provide support, financial and otherwise, to individuals and families who have the potential to improve their lives, the lives of their children, and the strength of our community.
