“Raising children is one of the most difficult and satisfying tasks in the word and one for which you may feel that you are least prepared.”
Juana joined Families First’s team in September 2019. In addition to her work as a Leadership Ambassador with Families First, she worked in the school system for many years in the area of Special Education. In that role, Juana assisted students who needed support to access the curriculum and benefit from their educational placement. She also worked at Mi Casa Family Services & Educational Center, Inc., from 2000 – 2004 to provide youth, family, and educational service to the Hispanic community in Hartford, CT.
Juana is passionate about working with children and their families, and therefore the Lord put her in charge of the Children’s Ministry Our First Children. She is a mother of two, and has four grandchildren, one of whom lives with her. She is a Pastor and also a Chaplain in the work of God helping the needy.
