Veronica Avalos is a facilitator of the Abriendo Puertas (Opening Doors) Curriculum with Partnership for Community Action (PCA). Veronica and her spouse have four children and two beautiful granddaughters aged 4 and 6 years old. As immigrants from Mexico and parents to a child with a disability, Veronica and her husband often sought community-rooted services and programs for support. Veronica was first introduced to PCA by a facilitator who invited her to enroll in Abriendo Puertas. She believes that every day is an opportunity to learn something new and was eager to join. Within the program, Veronica gained a wealth of knowledge about ways to advocate for herself and her children. She later began training to become an Abriendo Puertas facilitator and now supports the learning and leadership of other families.
