We Are Cuidado Casero Foundation

At the Cuidado Casero Foundation, we envision a community that values education as a pathway to success and strives to make positive outcomes accessible to all, regardless of their financial circumstances. Our mission is to extend a helping hand, open doors of opportunity, and inspire hope within our community. We are dedicated to assisting individuals who possess the ambition and potential to pursue a nursing degree in college but lack the financial means to fulfill their aspirations.

Through our commitment to scholarships, mentorship, educational workshops, and career guidance, the Cuidado Casero Foundation aims to nurture a diverse and robust nursing workforce. By empowering Hispanic students to become future healthcare leaders, we contribute to the betterment of our nation’s healthcare system and the well-being of the communities we serve.

We promise to strengthen the community by:

  • Providing financial support in the form of scholarships to Hispanic individuals pursuing nursing degrees at various levels.
  • Offering mentorship, leadership, and educational programs that inspire both Spanish and English-speaking high school students to embark on a healthcare career.
  • Playing a pivotal role in addressing the pressing need for Spanish-speaking nurses, thus bridging a crucial gap in our community’s healthcare services.”
