Nino De La Caridad Foundation is a non-profit organization which serves children in the Bronx Community. Founded by Dr. Denise Nunez, its primary goal is to extend a helping hand to children. This foundation aims to provide a secure environment in which children are able to enhance their social skills as well as their academics. It is our mission to provide children with the skills and knowledge they need to lead a healthy and fulfilling future.


  • We strive to improve the quality of life and help build a brilliant future for the children in our community by reaching out to them and their parents and providing a safe network where they can get involved in activities that will contribute to their overall well-being.


  • To empower our children and aid them in any way possible to make sure they get the education they deserve.
  • Reach children living with autism in our community and develop programs to assist them in participating in social activities.
  • Work with parents and ensure they have all the means available to them so that they can take care of their children in the best way possible.


  • Create a Higher Education-driven program in which we will provide means for our children to participate in activities that will help them follow their desired career paths.
  • Create a mentorship program in order to provide our children with guidance regarding their educational needs.
  • Provide children with the opportunity to get involved in the arts and sports.
  • Implement a “big brother” program for children living with autism in which they will be able to be part of a sport team while being accompanied by an older mentor who will guide and accompany them throughout the entire process.
  • Provide parents with resources such as parenting workshops, conferences, and seminars that will help them and their children reach towards bettering different aspects of their lives.
