A young law graduate from Mexico, Nadia Barreda Delgado, traveled to Los Angeles to thank attorney Juan J. Dominguez for sponsoring the orphanage, in which she grew up, and her studies. In January 2018, the main building of the orphanage was renamed Centro Juan J. Dominguez, during Mr. Dominguez’s visit to Tijuana.
Attorney Juan J. Dominguez and his firm contribute to the well-being and education of children in and out of the country. “As a lawyer, I will follow in the footsteps of attorney Juan Dominguez, sponsoring the children in the orphanage where I grew up, and supporting the community by practicing immigration law,” said Nadia.
FEATURED CHARITIES OF THE MONTH
Brothers on a Quest works to raise awareness of Ataxia Type 2, also referred to as AOA2. This rare neurological disease impacts a person’s coordination and motor skills. It can cause slurred speech, involuntary eye movements and balance issues. The organization was started by the De Mint family after three of their four children were diagnosed with the disease. Donations to Brothers on a Quest go towards research into finding a cure for AOA2.
The M.A.R.Y. foundation recognizes the importance of introducing and encouraging art in a child’s life. Studies overwhelmingly show that an early introduction to art instills confidence and is crucial to the mental and emotional development of children. Donations pay for materials and help this innovative foundation bring art into the lives of all youngsters through coordinator-led school programs and family events.
Mary’s Kitchen is an all-volunteer organization that provides meals and other services for the less fortunate. Everything started in 1984 when Mary McAnena helped an unhoused woman living in a nearby park. Today, that small act of kindness has grown into a warm, inviting place that offers meals, clothes and showers to an average of 200 people a day. 100% of all donations go towards the cost of running and providing these services.
