Olga Martinez Hickman: Bachman Lake Together

In 2018 Olga Martinez Hickman accepted the executive director position at Bachman Lake Together, focused on the first five years of a child’s life. As the realities of COVID-19 began to surface in the Bachman Lake neighborhoods of northwest Dallas, Olga and leaders from across partner organizations shifted from an in-person education strategy to ensuring that families had the tools they needed for virtual school, as well as practical needs like food, diapers, and gift cards.
