It was a busy "Back to School" time for us. We have a total of 17 children who are either going to Head Start or Kinder and First Grade. The rest of the kids (6) remain in the Home during school hours. We participated with Magic 95.1 and DDR, Corp in a fundraising event to collect school supplies for our children as well as others in the community. We also participated in the Annual United Way campaign for government workers along with employees from AEE and the PR Legislature. With a Grant from the PR Government we hired a part-time teacher to help our older kids keep up in school, so when they leave our Home they will be able to continue their development.
From a fiscal and management standpoint, we were audited by the Department of Justice and United Way, in both audits we received 100% compliance results. We are now in the process of our annual Financial Audit, which should be completed this quarter.
We want to thank various companies that participated in activities with our children and in maintenance and repair of our home: Walmart-Isabela "Regala un dia", Seemless/Hanes, Latin American Motorcycle Assoc and Honeywell Aerospace.
We also want to report that we are sponsoring students from the University of Puerto Rico, Aguadilla, Interamerican University and Universidad del Turabo. We have four students doing Social Work practice, three students working with our Psychologist and five students doing Volunteer work on a Communications project. We get to help them develop in their careers and they in turn help us with our kids.
Finally, as part of our Safety program, eight employees, including yours truly participated in a CPR certification course. We now have a larger amount of our employee population trained in this lifesaving technique.
