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.

Now as a first-generation college student, and Para Los Niños employee, PLN has become family and I am so grateful.
