Nuevo Amanecer Latino Children’s Services (NALCS) was established in Los Angeles, California on December 12, 1994 as a Bilingual (English/Spanish). It was created to serve children with a full range of services and therapeutic family-based treatment, especially those Latino children in Southern California, who have developmental difficulties and/or who have been the victims of physical abuse, neglect, abandonment, or sexual abuse.
Since its inception, NALCS has been able to honor its non-profit status with management excellence, professional best practices, and our ongoing resolution to keep building bridges to children and families’ success through a continuous quality improvement process.
At NALCS, we believe that integrity, honesty, loyalty, and respect are meant to guide and impel us to communicate, interact, and work in partnership with our foster/adoptive parents, our employees, those organizations that share our mission, and all any other involved parties.
The Council on Accreditation, COA, fully accredited our foster care program on October 14, 2004, which makes NALCS an organization that validates its commitment to excellence with credibility, integrity, and achievement.
NALCS is a proud member of the Foster Family-based Treatment Association, FFTA, CAAA, AdoptUsKids, California Alliance for Children & Families, and Child Welfare League of America
