This month our #Volunteer Spotlight is Consuelo Martinez. Consuelo is originally from the Chicago area and moved with her family from Puerto Rico to Raleigh in 2020 at the height of the pandemic. She got involved with NCDSA virtually by participating in Noche de Mamás and Mom’s Night In. Her son Rafael (3) has Down syndrome. Consuelo loves being able to give back to the community by volunteering with NCDSA and in particular the Spanish speaking community. Thank you, Consuelo!
