Review for Palante Harlem Inc, New York, NY, USA
I voluntered at Planate for a short time but from that small experince I was able to catch the strength of this organization, Elsia Vasquez is a hard working and well informed leader who dedicates her time to working with and helping members of the local community. While being only a young non-profit organization that is challenging the law of New York city for the rights of those that have been neglected and left to fend for themselvs. Elsia has given these very people a tool to fight back againt the neglect and abuse of there landloards. The tenants that Palante represents are majority older citizens of the community and are seen as unable to defend themselvs against a larger entity yet Palante has given these citizens a voice to fight with and that is invaluable. Not only does Palante help older citizens of the community but as well as engaging the youth of the community by employing nearly all of her staff with young adults no older than 21 years of age. This shows that Palante is dedicated to giving back to not only the elders but also the youth covering all memebers of the community and giving invaluable information and oppertunity to all, this is one of the very few still true to the citizens of the community non-profit organizations.
