June 9, 2023

The Village for Families & Children recently named Victor De La Paz as the organization’s new Chief Administrative Officer (CAO). In this role, De La Paz will lead The Village’s administrative departments of risk management and compliance, facilities and information technology.

De La Paz brings two decades of extensive executive leadership experience across government, non-profit and corporate sectors to his role at The Village. He has served as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for The Peace Corps and held CFO or Chief Operating Officer (COO) roles for Achievement First Charter Schools, and large school districts such as New Haven, Baltimore and Hartford. He transitioned from corporate finance roles over a decade ago through the Broad Residency in Urban Education—now housed in the Yale School of Management, where he was previously an adjunct professor for education management.

“I feel deep resonance with the core values of The Village. I’ve chosen a career of service, and the opportunity to serve the Hartford region in a focused way is as exciting as it gets for me,” De La Paz said. “I’m thrilled to be one of many leaders at The Village that executes our mission of serving youth, parents and residents of our community with their health, education and social needs.”

De La Paz holds a BA in History and Political Science from Rutgers and an MBA from the University of Virginia Darden School of Business. He proudly enjoys his strong ties to the Hartford community.
