50 Years of AVANCE Celebration

50th-websiteAsset 2


In celebration of AVANCE’s 50th Anniversary, we are embarking on a yearlong campaign to honor our history, acknowledge our tremendous impact on children and families, and share our exciting plans for the next 50 years.


We kicked off our yearlong celebration with an event on AVANCE’s birthday, September 14, 2023, in San Antonio, where we honored our founder, Dr. Gloria G. Rodriguez, recognizing her decades of tireless service to the organization and the families and communities we serve.


This was the first of several events throughout the coming year, celebrating this milestone. We are planning events in the locations below, communities where we currently operate, and where we would like to operate in the future.

Learn how you can sponsor a local event by visiting our Sponsorship page, or donate now to support our mission while joining the celebration. Be sure to follow us on social media, and stay tuned for more exciting updates.

As a proud UnidosUS affiliate, we are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting a special reception in conjunction with the UnidosUS conference to commemorate 50 years of walking alongside Latino families.
