My name is Carlos Alva. I am from a small town in Peru called Laredo. I Graduated as a school teacher and came to this beautiful country 17 years ago
to follow my dreams and have better opportunities to support my family, now, living in Dallas has granted me the opportunity to notice the many people around us. Working at Paso a Paso I think about how unique our clients lives must be just like everyone else’s. When I came into this field almost 2 years ago, I started as Receptionist getting familiar with the industry and the families, I didn’t expect for it to change my life the way it has. I am now a Foster Care Coordinator and I feel so blessed to have the chance to work with people in the IDD community. I love what I do and who I work with. There is still much to learn in this field, and I am definitely looking forward to what else I am capable of doing for the individuals we serve!
