The Challenge:

Like most services in the island, education took a hit during the previous hurricane season by loosing important infrastructure, human capital, and learning materials and spaces.

How is Hispanic Federation Helping?
Hispanic Federation is helping organizations that are focused on strengthening the island’s educational infrastructure through innovation and basic needs provision.

Who are we helping?

Boys and Girls Club (San Lorenzo) 

  • Que es?

  • Using funds from Hispanic Federation, Boys and Girls club will identify a new home and cover furnishings after their facility in San Lorenzo was damaged beyond repair.


University Student Grants (Island-wide)  

  • Through Hispanic Federation funding, Fundación Comunitaria de Puerto Rico will provide emergency grants to hundreds of university students to replace books, equipment and educational materials lost or damaged with Hurricane Maria’s passing through the island. 

Escuela Superior Montessori Juana Colon (Comerio) 

  • This Montessori School specializes in working with children with disabilities, a population specially vulnerable in times of disaster.

  • Funding from Hispanic Federation provided for the restoration of furniture and supplies that were destroyed by Hurricane Maria.
