Elba has been the director of the child care center for 26 years. We think she must have started when she was 5.

112 children are in the September 15 Day Care Center, one of 3 operated by the Roblealto Childcare Association. 12 were under the age of 2. These are children of a working parent(s), most of which have difficult backgrounds of violence, abuse, homelessness; often innocent victims of alcoholism and/or drugs.
