Para Los Niños is transforming lives by closing the achievement gap for children in poverty. Our early education centers and schools build on a child’s innate strengths and resilience, preparing them to be critical thinkers, creators and innovators. Each early education center and school is a family and community resource, providing a progressive, whole child approach to education supported by a range of critical social services including mental health, parent engagement, guidance in securing food and shelter and specialized programs to help families in crisis. Our mission is to ensure our children and families have the tools and supports they need to succeed in school and in life. Para Los Niños serves more than 7,000 children and their families each year.
