Los Ojos De La Familia Arizona
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 needs assistance is designed stay within the educational system and will be the primary criteria for which support will be provided. Our 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.
Los Ojos De La Familia Arizona’s Journey began in New Mexico
Los Ojos Familia Starts in Albuquerque, NM
2010 – Los Ojos De La Familia is started in New Mexico by Michael and Jill Montoya and many high school friends with a simple premiss; give back to those in need.
Los Ojos Expands to Arizona
2017 – Los Ojos De La Familia expands to Arizona to serve Arizona families in need, led by original NM participants that call the valley of the sun home. Year one, Los Ojos AZ, served 50 families.
