Our Programs


Child Nutrition Program

Our program improves the health and eating habits of children enrolled in our daycare home network. More than 7,000 children are served healthy meals every day through our network of 850+ licensed daycare homes in San Diego, Orange County and Riverside County.

I love that I have an opportunity to educate and serve our providers each and every day, which in turn benefits the children in our Nutrition Program. I feel a real sense of pride knowing the valuable contributions the Chicano Federation has made through the variety of programs we offer.

Infant & toddler program

Promoting social-emotional, cognitive and physical development, our child care program provides services through our contracts with state-licensed day care homes. Our staff visit regularly to monitor the progress of the children in the daycare centers.

I was one of the beneficiaries of a Chicano Federation program when my daughter was a baby in the Infant/Toddler Program. Thanks to Chicano Federation’s programs we continue to work every day to give better service to meet the needs of the community and its families.

Home Visitor PRogram

Home Visitors work with parents of children 0-5 years on their child's learning and development. This program includes weekly in-home visits, child development education, socializations and field trips, referrals to community resources, services for children with disabilities and transportation resources.



We manage 9 apartment complexes with more than 300 units - six of which are for individuals and families, and three of which are for seniors. All rents are below market rate, making the apartments very affordable.

I am inspired by this organization and its goals and I am passionate about helping families and individuals from diverse ethnicities and backgrounds find a comfortable and safe place to call home.
