In May 2014 Vela held the first of four annual meetings of the Parent Council/Grupo de Padres Lideres! This bilingual group of 8 parent graduates will become the backbone for all that Vela does.
Launching the Parent Council continues the Vela tradition of building our organization around the needs of the families we serve. These leaders will work towards improving current programs, recruiting more families to join, helping determine future courses, and facilitating trainings for healthcare providers working with families like them! We are honored to work alongside these amazing parents of children with special needs.
