Building A Bright Future For The Youth In The Bronx
Niño de la Caridad Foundation (NDLC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empowering and improving the quality of life for the predominantly Hispanic youth and families in Bronx, New York.
What are we doing, and why are we doing it
Our mission is to create Latino leaders by providing children in our community a safe environment where they can partake in activities and programs that will help them build their self-confidence, leadership, and communication skills and equip them with tools to become the leaders of the next generation.
Our vision is to create a safe network where Latino leaders of the future can flourish and reach their full potential.
How We Began
Niño de la Caridad Foundation was founded by Dr. Denise Nuñez at a time when she used to work as a Pediatric Critical Care Physician in the Bronx. As she provided medical care to the local community, she started noticing the lack of resources that were available to Hispanic and Latinx families in the borough.For years, Bronx families have been facing great barriers. More than 40% of children in the Bronx live in poverty, compared to 20.6% statewide. Poverty is one of the most important reasons why children do not attend school or college.
How can you help
