La Fundación Niño de la Caridad fue fundada por la Dra. Denise Nuñez en una época en la que trabajaba como médica pediatra de cuidados intensivos en el Bronx. Mientras proporcionaba atención médica a la comunidad local, comenzó a notar la falta de recursos disponibles para las familias hispanas y latinas en el distrito. Durante años, las familias del Bronx han enfrentado grandes barreras. Más del 40% de los niños en el Bronx viven en la pobreza, en comparación con el 20,6% en todo el estado. La pobreza es una de las razones más importantes por las cuales los niños no asisten a la escuela o la universidad.



Collaborate in elevating the social and academic skills of young people in our community and preparing them to become our future leaders.
