We brought our first project to completion two months after Hermandad was born.
Our first endeavor has been to secure and ship a van donated by one of the Oglethorpe Inc. hospitals in Florida who agreed to donate a used van to Corporación Milagros del Amor (CorMA), in Caguas, Puerto Rico, a nonprofit south of San Juan.
CorMA has been working for over 20 years in the Central Region of Puerto Rico providing services aimed at assisting homeless individuals, those at risk of homelessness, families including single parent families, and elderly persons going through financial crises and hardships.They work cooperatively with helping agencies, churches, and corporations who have provided funds via grants. CorMA offers clinical training and internships for area university students in the fields of social work, and accounting. Our nonprofit paid for the shipping of the van from Florida to Puerto Rico.
