Dear Friends, Thank you so much for joining us for our 13th Annual Slice of Latin America Gala. We are honored to have so many friends amongst us tonight who have supported CHCF since our inception 31 years ago, as well as new friends who are just now getting to know us. We value all of you. Your generosity is appreciated, and it makes a difference. We are so happy to tell you that we have added three new members to our Board of Directors, which is more active than ever. The new additions are: Yvette Donado, Senior Vice President, People, Process & Communications at Educational Testing Service; Timmy Nelson, Vice President, State Government Affairs at UPS; and Gus Mazza, Vice President at Milrose Consultants, Inc. They will surely have a strong impact on the future of CHCF. 2013 marks the completion of our five-year strategic plan, and we are proud to announce that we met all of our goals! The plan outlined activities to meet a wide range of organizational and operational goals, including developing CHCF’s leadership, strengthening evaluation, and improving fundraising activities. It is amazing to see how far we have come in five years! We also continue to be responsive to emerging needs. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, CHCF mobilized to the streets of Staten Island to provide outreach to Latinos, some of whom were undocumented and/or spoke little or no English, to ensure that all people affected by Sandy received crucial supplies, resources and services in the weeks after the superstorm. Recently we have also expanded our Early Care and Education Institute and increased the number of children and families we serve with our award-winning After-school Programs. As you can see, we have a lot to celebrate this year. Thank you for again for all your support! S i ncerel y,

Elba Montalvo Founder & President/CEO

Denise Durham-Williams Chair, Board of Directors

PRINTED IN-HOUSE


About CHCF Since 1982, CHCF (The Committee for Hispanic Children and Families, Inc.) has been dedicated to combining education and advocacy to expand opportunities for children and families, and strengthen the voice of the Latino community. Believing that the most effective way to support Latino families is by building upon their existing strengths and fostering self-sufficiency, CHCF provides a number of programs and services to the community through Youth Development programs and an Early Care & Education Institute. Our policy work, grounded in our direct services, amplifies the voice of our communities on the local, state, and national policy levels around issues of child welfare, early care, education, juvenile justice, and the well-being of Latino children. Through our programs and policy work, CHCF is creating a shared prosperity for all Americans. Our Youth Development Programs reflect the Latino community’s culture and are designed with the underpinnings of civic engagement, advocacy, self-efficacy and leadership. The goal is to help students reach their full potential and be contributing members of their families and their communities. CHCF offers Drop-out Prevention, After-School, Teen Pregnancy Prevention and Responsible Fatherhood Programs. The Early Care and Education Institute at CHCF is committed to improving the quality of care and early education of Latino children through the professional and leadership development of educators and the education of parents. The Institute accomplishes its mission by guiding participants through courses, workshops and comprehensive support, including home visitation and technical assistance. CHCF also offers a bilingual Child Development Associate (CDA) Credentialing Program. CHCF’s Family Policy Institute combines education and advocacy to expand opportunities and promote civic participation that strengthens communities. Through community networking, programs, reports and coalition building, CHCF is helping Latino men and women work together to shape a collective agenda at the local, state and national levels for a successful future. Civic education and citizen classes teach Latinos about the democratic process and the importance of active citizenship and ways to serve the community. CHCF creates programs and services that engage whole families, building cohesive, self-sufficient families that take pride in their personal success, participate fully in society and help improve the Latino community.

Chef Chair

Jacques Gautier Chef Restaurant Palo Santo and Restaurant Fort Reno

Chef and restaurateur Jacques Gautier lives with his family on the same Brooklyn block that is home to his two restaurants: Fort Reno and Palo Santo. Since 2006 Palo Santo has served a daily changing menu featuring Chef Gautier’s eclectic take on traditional Latin American Cuisine. His second restaurant, Fort Reno was opened in January of 2012. Sustainability is an important part of the concepts behind Palo Santo and Fort Reno. Both restaurants feature responsibly sourced products, many of which come from small local farms. Gautier does his own design and construction using as much salvaged material as possible. Organic waste from both restaurants gets composted in Gautier’s roof-top garden which in turn produces salad greens and other seasonal vegetables incorporated into his menus. Before opening his own restaurants, Gautier worked in the renowned kitchens of Vong in New York and Azie in San Francisco. Gautier spent most of 2004 traveling and working as a wine maker’s assistant in Argentina. In 1998 he completed the chef training program at The Natural Gourmet Institute. At age twenty Chef Gautier was invited to cook at the James Beard House -he remains the youngest to have received that honor.
