Orientation to the parents
Our young people come from dysfunctional families of low income. They can’t help for the financial expenses of their sons. Puerto Rico does not have a public school for the education of these young boys. We are the only center dedicated to them.
Our greatest need for the year is obtain the funds to give continuity the education to these young people and to maintain our resources. We also have been affected by the actual economical situation. We are asking to your generous to help us in this need. We will use the funds received strictly for our priorities necessities, which is the education of the kids.
