CFVC was honored to be invited to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Caminar Latino’s “Latino Journey” with a “Gracias Party” on November 7, 2015. During the event, attendees enjoyed a video presentation of the history of Caminar Latino, followed with remarks by their Executive Director, Jessica Nunan, along with a plated dinner. Honors were presented to Sister Barbara, who received the Visionary Award, Dr. Julia Perilla, who received the Lifetime Award, and BB&T who were named Business of the Year. CFVC Executive Director, Meg Rogers, and Multicultural Advocate, Vivian Keller, received the Community Partner of the Year Award on behalf of our agency. The award is presented to an individual, business, or organization that has demonstrated exemplary commitment and has made significant contributions in helping families in their journey towards non-violence.

Caminar Latino or “Latino Journey” carries out its mission by creating safe spaces for each family member to begin their journey towards non-violence. Caminar Latino is Georgia’s first and only comprehensive domestic violence intervention program for Latino families. Today Caminar Latino is a nationally recognized program for their approach in addressing intimate partner violence.  CFVC had maintained an ongoing partnership with Caminar Latino for many years, with our Multicultural Department working collaboratively with their agency. With CFVC spearheading the State of Georgia’s Spanish Language Domestic Violence Hotline this year, our relationship has continued to grow.

We appreciate Caminar Latino’s recognition of our efforts to serve the Latino community through naming Cherokee Family Violence Center as their Community Partner of the Year.
