Amigos For Kids ha sido una gran experiencia, he tenido la oportunidad de formar parte del grupo de Martha Peñaranda en Centro Mater, ella proporcionó de una manera muy explicita herramientas que me han sido muy útiles en el hogar en cuanto a la crianza, siempre he estado a favor de la crianza con apego, y su dedicación elevo mi conocimiento... Muchas gracias por el bien que hacen a la comunidad materna en estos tiempos donde la crianza se ve con otros ojos y gracias por la dedicación y apoyo en este tiempo de pandemia que nos ha tocado vivir... Que Dios los bendiga a todos!

Gracias Amigos FOR KIDS por hacer posibles estos proyectos es de gran ayuda que quieran transmitir valores tan importantes como la Solidaridad y la empatia, entre muchos más temas que son esenciales que nosotros como padres aprendamos a desarrollar. Para que nuestros hijos crezcan en un ambiente sano.
Participar en estos talleres fue una gran experiencia y me ayudo a fortalecer los lazos con mis hijos. Todos los padres deberian tener la oportunidad de asistir a talleres como este.

I truly truly love Amigos for Kids. Since the day I met Martha, she has been such a patient, kind, thoughtful, caring person, not just in performing her duties for Amigos but also in showing genuine care for me and my family. She shows this sincere care for all families. The parenting class was awesome and I learned so much. And I am so glad we were able to continue through zoom after schools closed. I was also so surprised when our family received food on our front door step during the early stages of Covid-19. Its been a true blessing to be a part of the Amigos family. Thank you, Martha and Amigos and all the supporting staff!

Amigos is well known in our community for its public events, including an annual "Blue Ribbon" event that brings together hundreds of elementary school children to talk openly and bring awareness to the very difficult topic of child abuse. However, the organization's less public programs, like those that bring together parents to talk about parenting and how parenting decisions affect the well being of children, get to the essence of the organization: to prevent child abuse before it even happens. Amigos' after school programs also provide children with a safe and secure environment in which to thrive because neglect is also a form of child abuse. As a board member, I've had the opportunity to listen to parents explain how Amigos has helped them become better, more attentive parents and the positive effect this has had on their children. When you hear those testimonials, you really appreciate the difference Amigos is making. We all hope that no child ever suffers from abuse and that is exactly the mission of Amigos: preventing child abuse and neglect before it happens by helping children and their families and educating our community.

I have been volunteering with Amigos for over 8 years. I have contributed over 300 hours with the organization. Participating in their yearly back to school drive and annual toy drive. What they have been able to do by helping underprivileged kids and families in the community is unparalleled. Their continued commitment to also combat child abuse has been prosperous by educating families and bringing awareness.
