PBHA 12th Annual Call of Service Award - Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz

BMC had a great opportunity to attend the lecture for the PBHA 12th annual “Call of Service “ honoring Mayor Cruz from Puerto Rico.

BMC members had a chance to listen to Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and witnessing her beautiful heart and honest spirit as she graciously takes time to speak with each person she meets.  She has shared words of truth and inspirations.


Mayor Carmen Cruz will be here this year as PBHA "Call of Service" 2018

We are very excited and looking forward to have Mayor Cruz this year as PBHA "Call of Service".  It will be a great opportunity to hear from her as I am sure it will be moving and inspirational time with her.

Carmen Yulin Cruz is a lifelong public servant, she has made a career in Puerto Rican politics since 1992 and served in the House of Representatives of Puerto Rico from 2009-2013 before being elected Mayor of San Juan.  Mayor Cruz has been a staunch advocate of Women's immigrant, LGBTQ, Death and labor rights in addition to pushing for Puerto Rican self determination throughout her career.  

Last year, became a strong advocate for getting much needed help and dignified care for the people  of Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, drawing international attention to the egregiosly underestimated impact of the natural disaster

BACK TO SCHOOL PROJECT FOR PUERTO RICO - SEPTEMBER 2018

Aguadilla Puerto Rico /Back to School Campaign

Dear BMC:

Back pack for PR - 6.2018.jpg

Thank you for the amazing back packs! At the Student Asociation of Psychological Family Counseling, we want to reach the corners of our community in most need. With that in mind we are gonna use the back packs you sent us in a back to school campaign, in a low income neighborhood. In the next few weeks we will be gathering school supplies to fill up the bags to be handed out to a selected group of children. Puerto Rico is facing a massive public school shut down due to government cuts. Many families are economically struggling with the new accommodations necessary to provide their children with all that is needed for school, such as supplies, transportation and uniforms (wich are the most expensive). We thank you for all the help and support you have provided us over the last months. It is extremely important for us to meet these families in their effort to bring up their children in any developmental stage.

Phase 2 -

Materials arrived and the team were excited to put the backpacks together for distribution ...

Mission accomplished!!! Thanks to everyone who made this possible!!! Already helping with inventory or cooperating with association donating materials! A very special hug to the Boston Mother care group who has been supporting us in our initiatives in recent months. Thanks to Sam's club de mayagüez who joined our efforts to impact communities of scarce resources. Stay in tune for the delivery of materials!!

Sincerely Deborah Sepulveda
