Nilda Valmores has had the honor of leading My Sister’s House, the Central Valley’s only shelter for battered Asian / Pacific Islander women and children since September 2004. Prior to arriving at My Sister’s House, Valmores was the Community Development Director for Mercy Housing California for 5 years. As a child advocate, Valmores has worked with non-profit organizations on a statewide level addressing issues affecting children and the poor, in education, social services and housing arenas for over 20 years. When she isn't found at the office or at a My Sister's House related event, Valmores says that she can be found pestering her husband and 2 teenage children!
Executive Director, My Sister’s House
SFP Leadership Development Program has provided me with the managerial frameworks to govern and lead through hard times; the peer wisdom and support to laugh through challenging employees, difficult board and funder issues and the confidence to speak with a louder voice statewide to assist victims of domestic violence, particularly those facing language and cultural issues.
