“Since day one, Para Los Niños has welcomed me with open arms and provided me with guidance and a support system to fall back on. They have become a staple in ensuring I strive academically and professionally. Guiding me to countless opportunities that allow me to financially support myself and my family. Their support eased my college application process and assured me that if I took all the necessary steps I could be the first in my family to attend a university. Now as a first-generation college student, and Para Los Niños employee, PLN has become family and I am so grateful.”

I love my job. Para Los Niños has allowed me to support families with translation, encourage them towards resources and solutions, and walk alongside them to remind them that they are not alone.”
