About Us

Our Mission

At Conexión Américas, our mission is to build a welcoming community and create opportunities where Latino families can belong, contribute and succeed.

Our Approach

We believe successful efforts to promote the integration of immigrant families into their new community recognize that integration is a multi-dimensional process.

Therefore, Conexión Américas focuses on advocating for, and supporting the integration of, Latino families in three inter-dependent areas of human development:

  • Social Integration
  • Economic Integration
  • Civic Integration

Promoting Integration: A Two-Way Street

We also believe that true integration of immigrant families is achieved when the process is understood as a two-way learning experience that engages both the newcomers and the host community in reciprocal understanding, respect and adaptation.

Therefore, at Conexión Américas we deliberately employ a dual strategy to achieve our mission:

  • We help low- and moderate-income Latino families realize their aspirations for a better quality of life by providing comprehensive services: from information and referrals (social integration); to assistance in buying a home (economic integration); and opportunities for developing leadership skills (civic integration)
  • We help our host community (long-time residents, non-profit groups, government agencies, businesses) understand the presence, contributions and challenges of Latino families in Tennessee, primarily through our advocacy and public awareness efforts.

    I saw there was an event today at Waller but I could not find any information about it on your website or calendar and I wasn’t sure if it was too late to register. I thought I had signed up for newsletters but I signed up again because I think you may have revamped your system.
