Nadia Palomino and Alayne Unterberger attended the CADCA Conference in Washington DC as part of our Proyecto Prevencion grant.
Daniel Rivera: I'm Daniel Rivera and I'm here tonight to tell you how Alayne and the Multicultural Family Center changed my life.
I once wanted to join a gang,I once thought that being in a gang would give me power but that's when I met Alayne and the staff. I told myself, "Ha, they can't help me with my problems that I have" but as I started to come more often and join Project Prevention I started to change a little. But one day something happened that really had me thinking what I'm going to do with my life. A group of kids were sitting in the conference room when Alayne decided to make the youth board for the youth. I thought to myself, "I'm not going to join; I'll never succeed in anything" but Alayne had me run for treasurer so I went along and ran I and when it came time for electing the winner I walked in the room about to sit down cause I knew that I lost but when they announced the winner and that winner was me.

Alayne Unterberger, a researcher on social and economic policy at Florida International University, said that the supply of expensive housing units is greater than the supply of single affordable homes.
"In South Florida, we face the challenge of being able to attract very wealthy people - both from the U.S. and abroad - who can pay these high rates for housing," Unterberger said. "That's who our market is geared for and so the housing that is being built is not affordable," concluded Unterberger.

In 1992, as a Research Assistant at the University of South Florida, FICS Director Dr. Alayne Unterberger was sent to Wimauma FL, an agricultural rural town populated primarily by persons of Mexican and Guatemalan descent, who first came to the area to work in the fields in South Hillsborough County. Her goal was to conduct a focus group on children's health issues with Mexican farm worker women. What she learned was that the community representatives believed steadfastly in the American Dream and wanted to give their children everything they did not have back home. When the Florida Institute for Community Studies (FICS) began in 2002, Alayne had already worked with the Wimauma community for ten years and had embarked on her dissertation research in Guanajuato Mexico and Wimauma Florida, tracking health issues with the migrants.
