We are creating this group to cultivate a Brazilian community in the Inland Empire. A place where we can share experiences, provide resources for self-development, improve English, enjoy Portuguese conversation and a safe place for parents with children to connect. Helping our little ones learn both American and Brazilian cultures and language. We are a Christian family, who usually resides in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brasil, where we focused on helping low-income families through charity and spiritual growth. We will be living in the I.E. a minimum 6 months. Estamos com saudades do Brasil. We are enjoying our time with family but also want to take this opportunity to help other Brazilians establish themselves in the U.S. We know what it is like to miss home and the need for community. Our desire is to create a clean and safe environment and atmosphere for Brazilian families or individuals, of all walks of life, to connect and encourage each other. A place to create friendships with other Portuguese speakers. We hope to have meet ups that will not exclude anyone, as well as meet ups specific to certain members, such as playdates for mother's with babies/toddlers, Bible-studies for those interested in learning more about the Bible, a woman’s devotional at various coffee shops around the I.E., and coffee/tea socials to specifically improve English.
