The Center is dedicated in honor of community matriarch Lorraine "Grandma" Camacho. Mrs. Camacho lived on Canterbury Street for more than 40 years, down the street from Metz Recreation Center. She was an advocate for children, first at Zavala Elementary and then at Metz Elementary. She volunteered for many years with the Reading Is Fundamental program. Over the years she was someone the neighborhood children could trust and know she would protect them as though she were their parent. She offered her house as one of the first McGruff House, a safe house for children. Mrs. Camacho spent endless hours working in her community and working to enhance the life of her community and the community’s children.
