PrintNCLR (National Council of La Raza) recognized Valle del Sol as the 2014 Far West Affiliate of the Year during the NCLR Annual National Conference.

“Valle del Sol received the award because of their deep commitment to providing critical needs and services to Latino families,” said Janet Murguía, NCLR President and CEO. “We are incredibly grateful to have such a strong network of Affiliates; without them, we would not be able to have the impact we need to foster a stronger, smarter, and healthier Latino community.”

“I was honored to accept this award on behalf of Valle del Sol from NCLR,” said Carlos Galindo-Elvira, Valle del Sol’s Chief Development Officer. “It is a testament of the important work our agency provides to the individuals, children, and families in need of our services.”

The Affiliate of the Year Award and the Regional Honoree awards, sponsored by Ford Motor Company Fund, recognize exemplary nonprofit management, service to community, and active engagement in and promotion of NCLR’s programmatic and advocacy initiatives.
