Ms. Diaz holds a B.A. in Sociology from California State University, Northridge (CSUN). She has experience in the Human Services field working with immigrant children, youth, and families. Before Child Child Advocates, Frida was working with Kids In Need of Defense (KIND) to ensure unaccompanied minors were obtaining an education, medical, and mental health resources.
Growing up in a low-income community I witnessed, poverty, crime, and the lack of resources available for families in need. Growing up in that environment I always knew I wanted to help my community and I sought out programs that would lessen and alleviate poverty. Over time this sentiment grew into a career goal in the Human Services field, thus obtaining the Program Assistant position for Prosper Placer.
Being involved with Child Advocates of Placer County has allowed me to assist, support, and provide resources for low-income families. This work is rewarding in itself, however, the most meaningful outcome has been witnessing families continuously work on achieving their goals and build a genuine relationship with their allies.
My favorite Child Advocates of Placer County signature event is the Fall Gala! I love meeting volunteers as well as seeing everyone come together for such a wonderful cause.
