(Adelante) is proud to announce that their Director, Pilar Delgado, received the Hispanic Heritage Award from Suffolk County Legislator Monica Martinez, at the Legislator’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration. The celebration was held at the Central Islip Public Library in October. Pilar was honored for her commitment and dedication to the progress and growth of the Hispanic community.
 
“All of us in the FREE Family are thrilled for Pilar,” said Robert S. Budd, CEO, FREE.  “Pilar Delgado is a tireless advocate for the Hispanic Community and a true partner in service,” he continued.
 
Pilar Delgado was born in Brooklyn, NY to immigrant parents from Puerto Rico. She was one of six children and learned the value of sharing early on in life.  Her parents taught her and her siblings to forge forward, persevere, and try to be the best one can be, as well as to “always give back”. 
 
Upon leaving Brooklyn, NY, she was married and set out to achieve the American Dream of owning her own home.  She and her husband, settled in Selden, in Suffolk County.  She yearned to stay connected with her roots and ended up becoming Director of La Union Hispanica where she found her true purpose in life – to serve the Hispanic community.  Pilar went on to become a part of the board of Adelante of Suffolk County, where she served for over fifteen years before becoming Director. 
 
“I love connecting with the Hispanic population,” said Pilar Delgado, Director, Adelante.  “To put it simply, I love my job and love what I can accomplish with a simple smile on my face. I do not stand alone; my husband and family encourage me every day,” she continued.
