We are excited to announce two new additions to our staff – Luis Cruz and Anna Carro. Luis started with BIIN in June and Anna started this month.
Luis Cruz Peralta is a native from Veracruz, Mexico. He has lived in Houston for over 20 years and now lives in College Station. A former student from Texas A&M with a major in Spanish, Luis is a passionate person who enjoys helping others in need and hopes to make a difference in his community. He began volunteering with BIIN in September of 2016. As Case Coordinator, Luis is responsible for maintaining the Information, Referral & Advocacy program, meeting with clients, and following up on each case. In addition to being the Case Coordinator at BIIN, he also works at HealthPoint.
