HISPANIC FAMILY INSTITUTE KICK-OFF EVENT

CHICAGO, Oct. 26, 2005 - The Latino Consortium will host the Annual Hispanic Family Institute reception to celebrate the Latino community and pay tribute to those who have played significant roles in the delivery of services to Latino families.

"The Hispanic Family Institute kick-off event is our way of personally commending the ongoing efforts of those working to improve the lives of Hispanic children and families throughout Illinois," said DCFS Director Bryan Samuels.

The event, which is a precursor to the 17th Annual Hispanic Family Institute on November 9-10th, will be held at the Garfield Park Conservatory at 300 N. Central Park from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on October 26th.

DCFS Director Bryan Samuels is the guest speaker with appearances by representatives from the various Hispanic Consulates, Hispanic State Legislators, Hispanic Aldermen, and child welfare and other public and private agencies.

"The goal is to continue encouraging partnerships and relationship building with the community at large to help strengthen services to Hispanic families," added Samuels.

The event is sponsored by the Latino Consortium: Arden Shore, Association House of Chicago, Casa Central, Catholic Charities of Chicago, CAUSES, Chicago Commons, ChildServ, Child Link, Lifelink, Youth and Outreach Services. It is co-sponsored by DCFS' Office of Latino Services, DCFS' Hispanic Advisory Committee, Loyola University School of Social Work and the Peruvian Cultural Center.
