Our Story

We are the first collective fully formed and run by bilingual Latinx in the greater Austin area. We came together to create something that would foster community as well as empower families and help them connect to their roots. We all either worked for or volunteer for nonprofits who work with under-served communities, our communities.

The Mexican natives would come together in family groups of up to 20 families, called Kalpullis. The Kalpulli members share the work load and are self-sustaining. We are a group of families sharing and learning different ways to take care of each other and work together fostering human interconnection. The true concept of it takes a village...
