The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation Announces New Bilingual Program Coordinator

Written by FWD501cReporter

FORT WORTH, TX–The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation, a suicide prevention and depression research nonprofit serving North Texas, is proud to announce its new Bilingual Program Coordinator, David Umanzor.  David is a second generation Honduran American; he was born and raised in the DFW Metroplex. Growing up in a bicultural household allowed him to appreciate the diversity of culture and ethnicity. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Intercultural Studies from Southwestern Assemblies of God University.

David comes to The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation after spending time working in churches in Texas and Oklahoma.  David has served on mission trips in Africa and South America. He has also worked closely with refugee populations in Dallas. Through these experiences, David has gained excellent skills in communication, public speaking, and education. He is excited to use these collective skills in working for The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation.

A generous grant from The Morris Foundation, a private foundation dedicated to removing barriers and creating pathways for the vulnerable in the Fort Worth community, provided funding for creation of David’s position. This generous funding will support expansion of Hope Squads across the Fort Worth Independent School District. Since David is Hispanic and bilingual, this will enable The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation to better fill the mental health gaps in the Hispanic community.

David resides in Arlington with his beautiful wife Allison, son William, and their three cats. For more information on David and the rest of The Foundation team, please visit staff bios: https://jordanharrisfoundation.org/our-team-1.
