The Cobb Chamber’s Cobb Executive Women will have the CEW’s October Luncheon on Friday featuring Belisa Urbina, founder and executive director of Ser Familia.

Urbina will share her personal and professional journey, and will discuss creating cultural bridges with the Latino community.

In 2001, Urbina co-founded Ser Familia Inc. Their mission is to strengthen, revitalize and equip Latino youth, couples, parents and families through educational programs that teach improved life, leadership and communication skills, which empowers participants to thrive and enjoy a healthy family environment. Through its 14 years of history, Ser Familia has served more than 30,800 Latinos. In addition to guiding a force of 163 volunteers to provide these services, Urbina also serves as the Cultural and Linguistic Proficiency Coordinator for Lookout Mountain Care Management Entity, an organization that provides support to kids that are at risk of out-of-home placement and their families.

The luncheon begins at 11:15 a.m. at the Cobb Chamber.
