What people say

What people say about Las Candalistas

Brett Beck, Executive Director/VP
Thank you for your recent donation to Providence TrinityCare Foundation.  Your generosity, in combination with the special work of our exceptional staff, will provide palliative care and hospice for those who need us most.  We are honored to count you among our loyal partners - thank you for supporting our mission!
Mike Lansing, Executive Director
It is because of your support that we are able to continue programming for thousands of children each day in the Los Angeles Harbor Area. In the face of adversity, Club members can still imagine new possibilities for their lives and find the concrete support and resources they need to set and achieve their goals
Steve Creech, President
The Wyland Foundation is deeply appreciative of the support Las Candalistas provides. Your work shows how much impact a committed group of people can have in helping others in need. Thanks to you, the Wyland Foundation will be providing much needed mobile education outreach next spring to community centers and underserved schools throughout the south bay about the role we all can play in preserving the health of our coasts and waterways.
Terri Nishimura, Founder and CEO
For 20 years, Camp Escapades has provided inclusive, adaptive summer fun to thousands of campers with special needs. And with the support of Las Candalistas, children of all abilities have been able to enjoy a true summer experience.
