In total, Los Niños now employs more than 300 staff members, including speech, occupational, and physical therapists; psychologists; and social workers. This summer, after taking over management of CHIP, Los Niños was able to serve its 20,000th child.
"Our goal is to be of great service to others—that's our differentiator," Mesh says. "People tell us all the time that we 'walk the walk.' That's our best compliment."
Mesh says that Los Niños plans to add private services at its Staten Island location and will possibly add a daycare option as well, if there is enough interest.
