Challenge

According to a 2016 study, in Puerto Rico 9.7% of adults experience some form of depression, and 12.5% suffer from anxiety disorders. Suicide is the 3rd cause of violent death since 2000. Economic and social problems affect mostly children, teens, the elderly, and underprivileged. We've had an increase in demand for our services among low income population. We need to boost our programs with more professionals, resources and therapies for our local community.

Solution

Our program integrates different services to help families, children, and women to reach wellbeing, and personal development. This includes counseling, and psychological services, workshops that integrate the Artistic Creative Therapies of Music Therapy, and Dance Movement Therapy with counseling to deal with topics of parenting, self esteem, and emotions & others. We aim to help individuals, families, schools, and the community integrate body, and mind for personal fulfillment.

Long-Term Impact

As a community rooted organization, we have been providing services for more than 8 years; your donation will sustain and ensure that people in these communities can receive the emotional support they need to overcome adversity and develop the skills to go on with their lives, be strong and productive in a long-term basis. Our program impacts children as well as teens and adults. By empowering people to gain control of their emotional wellbeing we build a stronger community.
