Let’s Grow Together

Welcome To

Plant a seed!

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the local Latinx and underserved communities in El Paso.

At Plant a Seed, we understand the unique struggles faced by individuals and families from under-served, under-resourced, and under-educated communities. Our founders, Wendy and Miguel Gamillo, are first-generation Mexican Americans, born and raised in El Paso, Tx, who bring personal experience and a deep connection to the community.

As a former case manager, Wendy worked directly with families facing various challenges. She witnessed firsthand the limitations of state social service programs in addressing larger systemic issues and providing achievable, holistic solutions.

Driven by her experiences, Wendy was inspired to establish Plant a Seed, a non-profit organization that bridges the gaps and offers comprehensive support to individuals and families in need. Her dedication, empathy, and determination form the foundation of our organization’s mission and values.

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Plant a Seed. Together, let’s sow the seeds of change and cultivate a thriving community.
