Community Organization Spotlight: The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Dane County

  • By
  • Posted

Our Community Spotlight today is on the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). We are happy to support this organization through fundraising and volunteer efforts, led by one of our agents, Susan Stoehr. Learn more about this incredible organization, and how you can support the local chapter in Madison!

Type 1 Diabetes

Susan Stoehr, one of the Broker Associates at the Alvarado Real Estate Group, has been supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation since her daughter, Emma, was 9 years old.  That is when the family discovered that Emma had the disease. Since that diagnosis, Susan, Emma, and their family and friends have raised thousands of dollars for JDRF by participating in the yearly Gala and the One Walk. Susan describes why she continues to support JDRF:

At age 9, while on vacation in Florida, my daughter Emma was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.  We learned then that this disease is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.

Many people with Type 1 diabetes, including Emma, receive life-saving medications and therapies which allow them to live full and happy lives. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation contributes a considerable amount of funding to efforts aimed at the prevention and treatment of the disease worldwide.


"JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.

Vision: A world without type 1 diabetes

Mission: Accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications"

Dane County JDRF One Walk: September 24, 2017

JDRF One Walk has one goal: to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). We know you want to make a cure a reality too—and we can't wait for you to join us!

When you participate in your local JDRF One Walk, the money you raise supports life–changing breakthroughs that give hope to everyone impacted by this disease. And, you'll have a great time doing it! That's because you'll walk with a committed community that is passionate about doing whatever it takes to help turn Type One into Type None.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle—and it's serious and stressful to manage. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D and there is currently no cure. But there is something you can do to help. Please register to walk with us today. We can't do it without you.

From Susan:

Please support us and donate to our Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.

Thank you for your support!

2017 Java Jive- A fundraiser for the Dane County Rape Crisis Center

  • By
  • Posted

Helping our clients buy and sell homes is what we do. Creating the vibrant communities that our clients want to live in, is why we do what we do. There are many organizations in Madison and the surrounding areas of Dane County that advance equity, ensure community safety, highlight diversity, and improve quality of life through research, direct services, and support. The Alvarado Real Estate Group is committed to supporting these organizations and their work to improve the places where we live, work, and play. Because it matters!

Today, we want to highlight one of those organizations: the Dane County Rape Crisis Center  

The Dane County Rape Crisis Center

Serving Dane County since 1973, the Rape Crisis Center (RCC) provides services to survivors (and their family and friends) of all forms of sexual violence, including recent sexual assault, past sexual assault, incest (past or present), sexual harassment, and sexual exploitation. These services are provided free of charge and include crisis intervention and support via the 24-hour Helpline (608-251-7273), the Spanish language line La Línea (608-258-2567), short-term counseling, support groups, medical and legal advocacy and accompaniment, community education and outreach. RCC also operates Chimera Self-Defense Designed for Women, and Safer Bar.

Supporting the RCC

Sponsorship- 2017 Java Jive

This year, the Alvarado Real Estate Group is donating a silent auction item to the 22nd Annual Java Jive, one of the organization's largest yearly fundraising campaigns. This event is held at the High Noon Saloon on Sunday, September 17, 2017. If you love coffee, this is the event for you, with admission earning you a free mug and access to some of the best coffee in Madison, provided by local shops and roasters. To reserve your spot (and your mug!) today, please go here

Our creative and fun silent auction item made by Rachel Glaza...


Rachel Glaza, the Team Manager at Alvarado Real Estate Group, is also one of the Rape Crisis Center's 24-Hour Helpline Volunteers. Here's what she has to say about her experience:

Being a Helpline volunteer has put me in direct contact with victims (and members of their support network) who are going through very difficult situations. It's given me a whole new perspective on community safety, on supporting neighbors and friends, and especially, on supporting organizations like RCC who, day-in and day-out, advocate for justice and safety. 

If you are interested in donating to RCC, volunteering for RCC, or attending the 2017 Java Jive, be sure to check out the links provided.

Madison Businesses Stepping Up for Diversity and Inclusion

Co-Owner of Alvarado Real Estate Group, Sara Alvarado, shares the work being done in the business community with Malik Anderson at The Madison Times.  

Local Businesses Learn to 'Step Up,' Prioritize Diversity & Inclusion

"Oftentimes, assumed differences inhibit people from realizing their similarities with other people, especially across social borders. These workshops allow people to safely explore, communicate, and unlearn their inner biases." 

Local organization 'Step Up: Equity Matters' aims to create safe spaces for the community to learn how to talk about race. Sara Alvarado, co-creator of Step Up, explained that oftentimes workplaces forget to bring people of color into the conversation of lack of inclusivity in those environments. Alvarado, alongside co-creators Amy Kesling (Sustain Dane), Haywood Simmons (Motivational Expert, Phitness Plus), and Tania Ibarra (Latino Professional Association of Greater Madison) make up their core planning team.Step Up, which partners with the YWCA and receives support and training from their Racial Justice platform, encourages people of all backgrounds to begin conversations about race among their own communities. allowing them to move beyond the initial discomfort of talking about a contentious issue. Alvarado hopes that more businesses will start and continue to consider these conversations as valuable and necessary in working towards equity and inclusion in the workplace.

Alvarado contends that diversity in the workplace is more than just checking off boxes, it's about "bring[ing in] people who have something to add to the company." For example, Alvarado, Kesling, Simmons and Ibarra each bring unique skill sets to the organization to convey to others the importance and benefits of creating an environment that's comfortable for all people. Each core-planner's personal and professional experience informs their contribution to the discussion of how to talk about race and how to combat racial biases.

Part of why these conversations don't naturally happen is due to a common misconception. "Often people [of color] feel they are unvalued, but on the other side, white people feel they [people of color] don't want to be involved in that environment," Simmons said. Oftentimes, assumed differences inhibit people from realizing their similarities with other people, especially across social borders. These workshops allow people to safely explore, communicate, and unlearn their inner biases.

Simmons added that ignorance and blame allows people to make excuses for themselves, avoiding important conversations on race and losing opportunities to grow and connect with others: "Our workshops are about making people uncomfortable, but making them uncomfortable using vulnerability as a place for growth." James Phetteplace, Director of Information Technology at the Willy Street Coop, had only positive things to say about his experience with Step Up: "[The] facilitators are highly skilled at presenting and discussing difficult subject matter, and creating an environment that values courage, action, and commitment."

For Alvarado, the ideal situation in any business or place of work would be transparency about its own shortcomings with equity in the workplace, and also about its efforts to make diversity and inclusion a priority. The ideal is that a business "Walks it, talks it, and breathes it. It realizes it's not perfect," said Alvarado.

Simmons views the work the core planning team does as important and empowering for people, and feels optimistic about the influence it will have on the individuals and organizations involved. "We have the tools to get these conversations going. There is hope," he said.
