About Us

Established in 2011 by Co Founders Juanita Chacon and Meshach Rhoades, the Latinas First Foundation was created to provide a critical network and support for Latinas to reach their highest potential. The organization provides scholarships, mentorship and networking opportunities, and honors Latina Trailblazers and Unsung Heroines. The Latinas First Foundation celebrates and elevates the Latina community by focusing on the cultural and historical contributions of Latinas in Colorado while providing opportunities and resources for the next generation of Latinas.
