Community and Economic Growth

PRRU aims to play a vital role in building healthy communities that provide critical services that boost the economic stability of the island. We want to be the voice of the people we serve, advocate, and find solutions to problems affecting at-risk populations.  Our goal is to create innovative approaches to advance economic prosperity, help build resilience and career development  in distressed communities.


Vieques Collaborative Humanitarian Relief Mission

In collaboration with other groups, we have provided free medical care and distributed goods including medical and essential supplies. PRRU efforts in Vieques have been ongoing, in partnership with other organizations.

Caravana NaviDAR

Caravana NaviDAR is a fundraising campaign with the primary goal of reviving the holiday spirit and renewing hope for children and caregivers in foster care centers and underserved communities within Puerto Rico.  Funds raised allows us to provide toys, school supplies and a centralized artistic event, where the children learn about resilience and how to keep a positive outlook in life during difficult times.

From you we have received the support, to feel that we are not alone but from the other side of the world you are accompanying us... we have received the solar water heater, a small fridge that the Department of Family required, clothing, a generator, medicines, appliances, and contribution in the reconstruction of our warehouse ... this was key for us to continue what we do…
