Challenge

In Puerto Rico 9.7% of adults experience some form of depression, 12.5% suffer from anxiety disorders, suicide rate is high. Economic and social problems affect mostly children, teens, the elderly, and underprivileged, causing depression, anxiety, emotional and psychological distress. We've had an increase in demand for our services among our low income population, especially since 2017 impact of hurricane Maria. We need to boost our programs with more professionals, resources and therapies.

Solution

Your donations will allow us to hire more psychologists, counselors, therapists, integrate new services, improve administrative support, acquire materials to make better assessment and treatment, impact more schools and elderly homes. Some of our professionals are voluntaries with limited hours available, with your support we will be able to expand our schedule of services. One participant express the impact in her live: "I feel peace, I am not depressed anymore".

Long-Term Impact

As a community rooted organization, we have been providing services for 5 years; your donation will sustain and ensure this can be a long-term program of support for our children, teens, and adults. By empowering people to gain control of their emotional wellbeing we build a stronger community. A participant evaluates the program: "I am thankful because you have helped me change the course of my life and now I feel dignified again". Another says: "CODAMO is my health and oasis".
