June 06, 2022

SACRAMENTO – Senator Ben Hueso honors San Diego-based House of Mexico as the 2022 California Nonprofit of the Year for Senate District 40.

House of Mexico was selected for its implementation of on-going programs which create a bridge to multicultural understanding by sharing, celebrating, educating, and promoting the beautiful art, culture and history of Mexico.

House of Mexico is a part of the International Cottages in Balboa Park, a complex of cottages which highlight the culture, arts, food, and traditions of several countries around the world.

“I am proud to select House of Mexico for their commitment to enhancing the multicultural experience to San Diego residents and visitors,” said Senator Ben Hueso (D-40). “House of Mexico represents our vision of inclusion for all nations and ethnicities in our district.”

After several years of fundraising and planning, House of Mexico opened its doors in April 2022.

“The House of Mexico is proud to be chose as the 2022 Nonprofit of the Year by Senator Ben Hueso,” said Blanca Gonzalez, President of House of Mexico. “We are extremely gratified that Senator Hueso recognizes and supports the work and services of our organizations and its many dedicated volunteers.”

This is the seventh year of the California Nonprofit of the Year initiative. In this time of continuing uncertainty and suffering, nonprofits have continued to step up to support our communities as circumstances and needs change swiftly.

“Nonprofit organizations play such a critical role in our communities, and the last two years of the pandemic have only served to highlight that,” noted Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits), which serves as a partner for this awards program. “California Nonprofit of the Year gives elected officials the opportunity to shine a light on the important work nonprofits are doing in their districts and for everyone to appreciate the collective impact of nonprofits in our communities.”
