Serving our latino community since 1983
The NCHN has led the way in providing a resources to our Latino Community in Napa County. The main focus has been to raise funding for college scholarships. They have awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships to 300+ students and growing every year thanks to our generous donors.
to our applicants
Born and raised in our community, I became the first member of my family to attend a higher education institution and receive a degree. There were mentors, many of whom were in the NCHN, helping me be where I am today. After college I came back to Napa to ensure our youth have the same opportunities I had while growing up. In 2013, I had the privilege of serving on the board with many of the mentors that I had looked up to. Fast-forward to 2018, I got elected as the Board President. Our mission motivates me to support our youth, advocate for cultural, educational and leadership opportunities. However, this is a team effort. I, nor the Board of Directors could do this alone, which is why I would like to thank our donors, supporters and volunteers.
