01

Impact

With over 9999 work hours our community of volunteers have overcome the disdain and abandonment from the government to transform a place back to its original beauty. The reach and impact of our work goes beyond numbers. Our work in Punta Borinquen is not only one of recreation and protection, but a clear driver of economic activity and quality of life for our community. As businesses flourish so has their support to our cause, the same with our network of volunteers. Tangible results gets people excited, gives them hope, and motivates them to take action. That’s the exponential impact you see in Punta Borinquen. A community model of engagement and empowerment that is seldomly found. When hurricane Maria destroyed most of our work, when all the wind and rain had stopped our members were out on the field cleaning the debris, knowing that it was up to us to bring back Punta Borinquen to what we had made it to be. To this date, without any FEMA or governmental financial assistance, and relying exclusively on volunteers’ work and private donations, we removed all the debris, trees, and restored the areas.

Accountability

Rescate strives to uphold to the highest standards of transparency, earning GuideStar’s Seal of Transparency. This distinction indicates that a nonprofit has provided verifiable financial/operational information in its Nonprofit Profile. By providing up-to-date information, nonprofits allow potential donors and funders to make educated decisions about the work they do.

This is particularly important in Puerto Rico, where donors might be at a loss of information and tend to gravitate towards larger entities that might not engage in bottoms-up, transformative empowerment that improves living conditions for those that need it the most: the community.

03
