The Latino Spirit Awards are given annually to honor those within the Latino community who are positive role models. Our founder Melinda Cuellar was given the award in 2018 for her amazing work for helping women heal both spiritually and mentally. She founded Divine Connections H.O.P.E. with the sole purpose and doing just that. Her vision is to create a space where survivor can go heal, be empowered and gain strength. Her relentless effort to share her strength and hope throughout the community is what ultimately got her nominated. It’s an amazing opportunity to be used by God, but even more to be rewarded.
