A “brilliant force for good on the planet,” Christina Vela is unwavering in her resolve to transform the lives of abused and at-risk children. Inspired by the triumphs of those she serves, she explains, “If they can do it, then I certainly can do it.”

Christina’s advice:

  1. Believe you can make a difference, one person at a time.
  2. Nonprofit” does not mean “for loss.”
  3. How we do the work is as important as what we say we will do.
  4. Self-care for caregivers is critical.
  5. Don’t give yourself an easy out.

Under Christina’s leadership, St. Jude’s Ranch is thriving. She is currently leading the charge to build a 15-acre healing facility for victims of sex trafficking — the first of its kind in the U.S.
