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
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.
