La Casa es su Casa “In the Company of Young Children” Virtual Gala

Join La Casa de Don Pedro this Friday, July 10th at 12PM as we proudly present the 2020 La Casa es su Casa “In the Company of Young Children” virtual gala, which celebrates La Casa's entry into infant and toddler care. Hosted by Dr. Beverly Lynn, CEO of Programs for Parents, this short film features the event’s three honorees: The Maher Charitable Foundation, Samantha Lott-Velez, and Robert L. Johnson, MD, FAAP. La Casa’s Board President Arcelio Aponte, Executive Director Raymond Ocasio, and Director of Early Childhood Education Yun Shin share their perspectives about La Casa’s new impact in infant and toddler care through Early Head Start. You'll also hear the voices of families who have benefited from our programs and see La Casa’s young children in action. Complete with a musical performance by Newark's-own Janetza Miranda at the end, this virtual experience is the next best thing to having the opportunity to celebrate together.

The video will premiere on July 10th at 12PM at https://www.facebook.com/pg/lacasadedonpedro/videos
