Described are aspects of the Avance Educational Programs for Parents and Children, a non-profit, community-based organization in San Antonio, Texas, with the general goal of strengthening and supporting low income Hispanic families. Introductory remarks focus on the organization's goals, target population, funding, and services. Subsequent to a personal account of the author's involvement in parenting education, discussion focuses on the implementation of the first Avance Program in Dallas and the replication of the Avance Neighborhood Intervention program in San Antonio. Modifications of the program across 12 years of operation are described, as are the program's involvement in other programs, conferences, and materials development activities; dissemination and public relations activities; and awards, recognition, and accomplishments attained by the program. Concluding remarks focus on the program's funding history, the characteristics of a successful parenting program, and future directions of the Avance program. (RH)
