Rob lives in Kent, Washington with his wife Carol and near their twelve grandchildren. Supporting students through Entreamigos’ scholarship program has had a tremendous impact on Rob and Carol’s life. “The relationships that have developed over the past few years are truly precious. To see the incredible impact Entreamigos has on families is inspiring. The connection we feel to EA and San Pancho is unlike any other we’ve experienced.”
“Entreamigos has allowed us to do what we like to do, help individuals who, by the lottery of birth, have not had the opportunity to reach their potential. It has been great privilege to participate in and contribute to its success.”
“Entreamigos has grown and changed as has our village. With that growth has come new opportunities and new challenges. But the passion, commitment and creativity that has always been the life force behind Entreamigos, it’s staff, volunteers, donors and community remains as vital as ever.”
“I have watched the growth and work of Entreamigos from the time it was a table on the street to present. I am in awe and have great respect for the empowering of the local community that has been generated by the organization and is proud to help contribute.”
I was born in Mexico City; my birth name is Sara Patrícia María del Carmen Silva y Pérez Arce. My U.S. name is Patricia Perez-Arce. My nuclear family moved to the US when I was 13 years old. I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology at Catholic University in Washington, D.C, and became a neuropsychologist, someone who tests for cognitive disorders in children and adults. My primary research interest has been how culture influences perception, attention, and response to one’s environment. I love reading non-fiction, swimming, walking, and being with people. As an adult I’ve always have been involved with the Latino communities in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. In 2008, my husband Lalo De Avila and I began to live in Mexico; our 3 sons and their families live in the U.S.A. and our daughter works in the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve as an environmentalist. In 2020 my husband and I moved permanently to San Pancho because we love every aspect of the town’s life: its people, its advocacy for protecting the environment, its community activism, and its Mexican coastal cultures. I have been an active member of the San Pancho’s water council since 2018, and I am delighted to have become a member of Entreamigos’ Board of Directors. I continue to be in awe of EA’s diversity of activities that mostly center around the healthy growth and enrichment of children’s lives, environmental justice, and improving the quality of life of San Pancho families. Entreamigos is a loving, supportive and family-oriented community center.
“From the moment I walked into EA over 10 years ago, the connection was immediate. The same vibe exists today & just thinking about EA energizes me. It is such a vibrant community of individuals from little ones to seniors offering a wide variety of activities. It’s a place where people gather & feel connected; a place where people care about one another. It’s the pulse of San Pancho & I’m proud & honored to be part of it.”
Juan Pablo Mora Ibarra, born in November 1979 in Distrito Federal, lived most of his formative years in the City of Aguascalientes, where he began his activities in graphic arts and developed as an entrepreneur in this business. In 2017, he arrived in San Pancho to enjoy a short vacation accompanied by his wife. This beautiful town on the Nayarit coast received them with the warmth and natural empathy of its beautiful people, they fell in love with it’s community and decided that this wonderful place would be their residence. Soon he found the opportunity to collaborate in various activities in a coffee shop, in that service he related to a great diversity of people, the same ones that make San Pancho such a unique place. Along with remotely managing his printing business located in Aguascalientes, he continues in the coffee business, as well as the promotion and sale of real estate. His interest in learning more about this town and its people has allowed him to realize how strong and united it’s community is, as well as the challenges it faces. In this vein, Juan Pablo is developing a project that will improve the collection of non-recyclable waste, as well as promote the separation of it. Since February 2022, he is proudly part of the Entreamigos Board of Directors and enthusiastically joins this great community center, eager to learn and contribute with his efforts to the development of its plans, objectives and goals.
