Board of Directors 2023
Tu Nidito is led by a dedicated, diverse volunteer board of directors. The Board supports the work of Tu Nidito and provides mission-based leadership, advocacy and strategic governance. Board members are elected annually and may serve two terms of three years each.
“Tu Nidito is a great organization with local impact and I look forward to bringing further exposure about Tu Nidito to my peers and company.”
“As a mother of two young children, I appreciate the comfort, support and hope that Tu Nidito provides to the children in our community when they or someone they love has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition.”
“As Tu Nidito supports young people and their families, it is really creating a strength in our community through a web of compassion, connection, and resilience. I love being a part of this.”
“I value the unique services Tu Nidito provides and am proud to be a part of this amazing organization.”
“It is wonderful to be able to give back to the community. Tu Nidito’s mission resonates with me and I am honored to be a part of it.”
"I lost my father as a young adult and was fortunate to be a part of a community that helped me through my grief journey. Being a part of the Tu Nidito Board is a way that I can echo the kindness extended to me and assist the Tucson community, our families, and our children so that none of us grieve alone."
"Grief and loss are things that we all experience in our lives, but rarely experience in the same way or in the same timing. I am so proud of the staff and volunteers of Tu Nidito who give of themselves to provide critical support and care to so many children and their families as they work through these challenging times in their lives."
"The importance of supporting children during times of grieving and loss cannot be overstated. Tu Nidito's mission supports not only the children, but also their families and our community as a whole. I am honored to contribute to Tu Nidito and serve on its Board."
“I am the grown-up version of some of the kids that are helped by Tu Nidito. I’d like kids to be able to feel safe in their little nest so they don’t go through what I went through."
“As a nurse, I often experience tragedy as part of my job. Tu Nidito helps me to be a part of the healing process after many of these tragedies.”
"As a ten-year volunteer at Tu Nidito, I've seen firsthand what a difference Tu Nidito makes in the lives of children and families. It's truly an honor to serve."
“I've returned after 11 years where I was involved in many capacities. Tu Nidito’s purpose is where my heart is."
