Victor Valentin was born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. He did not grow up an orphan, but he knows what it's like to be without a parent. For his own childhood, he was raised by his mother in Puerto Rico without the love of a father. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 2002 and was stationed in Yuma, Arizona. After four years, he left the Marines but decided to stay in Yuma, where he and his wife, Yomary, and their two children had put down roots.
Touched and inspired by a message he heard in 2007 from a local Christian radio station about orphans, Victor decided to create an organization to help orphaned children. In June 2009, he and his wife Yomary succeeded in establishing the No Orphan Left Behind Foundation (NOLBF), a faith-based, nonprofit Christian organization, dedicated to serve orphaned and vulnerable children in the U.S. and around the world. In 2020, Victor and Yomary moved NOLBF operations to Clearwater, Florida.
