Summary

Hurricane Maria literally shredded our town of Loiza, Puerto Rico and our project facilities sustained serious damages. Currently we are still in need of sealing roof where residents dorm, replace main entrance doors, paint interior of all facilities and build a cement hanger to protect our passenger vans used to transport our residents to and from schools, doctor's appointments and other vital services. In addition, a new fire alarm system must be installed for residential units.

Challenge

The Island Commonwealth of Puerto Rico suffered the worst natural catastrophe in its history. A category 5 hurricane blasted and devastated the entire Island leaving 100 percent of 3.5 million people without power, running water, communications, and access to food, transportation, gasoline and diesel and cash. Our facilities sustained serious structural damages including roof, walls, gates, doors, air conditioning, refrigeration units, lighting and alarm systems and vehicles and equipment.

Solution

After a year and a half since Hurricane Maria, we are working hard to rebuild, mitigate and repair our facilities. However, we still need to work in sealing roofs and painting the interior of housing units where our residents live and dorm. In addition, a new fire alarm must be be installed and a concrete hanger is needed to protect our passenger vans and service vehicles from hurricane force winds and water.

Long-Term Impact

At this historic moment of great challenge and need in Puerto Rico, neighbors and strangers alike have come together to lend a helping hand to one another bringing to life the power of solidarity. In our efforts to rebuild and repair our facilities, we have invoked our resiliency and character as an organization. We teach by example how to face adversity and we stand firm with our partners in our resolve to serve, protect and empower the girls and teens under our care for years to come.
