Nuevo Amanecer Latino Children’s Services (NALCS) is a bilingual (Spanish /English) California Nonprofit Corporation established in December 12, 1994 dedicated to serve foster children who have been victims of neglect, abandonment, physical, and sexual abuse. NALCS has been providing these services for the past 19 years in the counties of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange.
Our mission is to provide our children and families with love, education, and family-based concurrent planning services. Since its inception, we have been able to serve more than ten thousand (10,000) foster children and have helped more than 80% of them achieve reunification with their families. Nuevo Amanecer Latino provides good alternative opportunities for many children and parents to improve their quality of life, interaction, and their psycho-family dynamic. Nuevo Amanecer means a new sun rise, according to our parents, children have suffered abandonment, negligence, and abuse; and have suffered these tragedies in the midst of a very dark night. NALCS is here to provide these children with a new sunrise by providing responsible resource families and a loving and safe home environment. Aside from foster care and adoptions, NALCS also provides a full range of additional services and programs such as Whole Family Foster Home (WFFH), Emergency Shelter Care (ESC), Independent Living Skills (ILP), and provides services to Non-Minor dependents (NMD’s) through AB 12.
In only nineteen years, Nuevo Amanecer Latino has delivered the best quality family-based treatment services while keeping, refining, and implementing a continuous quality improvement process. Nuevo Amanecer is a member of the Alliance for Children and Families and California Association of Adoption Agencies. On October 14, 2004, our foster care program was accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and on October 14, 2012 our adoption program was also accredited. Since our inception, we are continuously working in partnership with the Department of Children and Family Services of Los Angeles County, Children and Family Services San Bernardino County, Department of Public and Social Services Riverside County, and Orange County Social Services Agency. According to Latino Business Magazine, NALCS is one of the 20 top non-profit Latino Corporations in the United States of America.
Join us to fulfill our mission and continue serving children in order to provide them with a path to a better future life.
