PRRU strives to promote the well-being of  Puerto Rican communities through collaborative approaches:

(1) community based-outreach
(2) disease prevention education
(3) increasing access to health care
(4) a comprehensive approach to health and well-being

We believe that supporting the young through Education and Resilience, the workforce through Community and Economy growth; we close the loop with the Ceiba project with our elders.

Health and Wellness are one of our fourth pillars and Ceiba is the first project of many of future endeavors with the community.

We are committed to support the community in every aspect of health, mind, and soul.

CEIBA Project

The first goal of the Ceiba Program is to increase older adults’ knowledge and engagement in physical activity and nutrition, to promote social interaction, improve behaviors and psychosocial skills for mental stimulation, and ultimately improve the overall quality of life of the elderly.

We want them to live in a nurturing environment where they can be socially engaged, feel supported, inclusive and have the attention they deserve.

“ For the unlearned, old age is winter; for the learned, it is the season of the harvest”. – Hasidic saying”

“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago”
-Warren Buffett

Just as our Old Ceiba tree that lives for centuries, our elders are the perpetual shade that we sit under and pass that vast knowledge and the identity we are familiar with. We believe that just as our ceiba tree, our elders perpetuates this cycle of life.
