I am proud to lead the Puerto Rican Action Board (PRAB), a comprehensive human services organization and Community Action Agency for Middlesex County West with our headquarters in New Brunswick, Middlesex County. Since 1969, PRAB has provided diverse bilingual/multicultural services to the Central New Jersey community. Presently, PRAB operates 11 sites in Middlesex and Mercer counties, and serve approximately 25,000 individuals and families each year, of which nearly 40% are Hispanics/Latinos. I serve on many local and state board and collaboratives, in which I always advocate on behalf of the Latino community. I am Puerto Rican and my wife is Ecuadorian, and we have two EcuaRican teens.
