El Valor is a nonprofit organization serving over 4,000 children, adults with disabilities, and their families annually. Our mission is to support children, people with disabilities, and their families to achieve excellence and participate fully in life. Our programs exist to create opportunities that enrich and empower vulnerable populations to become their own advocates and promote a sense of inclusion within a learning community.
Courage is most recognizable in difficult times. As many individuals in our community have placed themselves at risk to serve others in this time of need, El Valor’s staff have similarly sacrificed their personal interests for the well-being of our programs’ over 4,000 children, adults with disabilities, and families who need us now more than ever. Stacey Baca and ABC7 recently highlighted the stories of some of our heroes who have sacrificed to continue serving El Valor’s vulnerable community.
