One in every five families in America has a child with special needs, and the parents of those children often feel alone and overwhelmed in trying to navigate through the system of doctors, therapies and special education. VELA, a local bilingual non-profit, works to empower those parents and provide a community for those families.

Miranda is donating the proceeds from her new album, It’s Merry Christmas Time, to VELA. Hear their conversation here:
