Tennis Tuesday is a content series curated by the New York Empire that will feature some of the game’s greats and New York’s finest tennis coaches, administrators, and fans. As the Child Care Manager for the Puerto Rican Association for Human Development Inc. (PRAHD) in Perth Amboy, NJ, Jasmin Melendez has recently introduced a new sport to her students that most of them had never played - tennis.
The Puerto Rican Association for Human Development, Inc. (PRAHD) has been awarded a $50,000 grant to support the agency’s Resources for Independent Living (REFIL) Program – a home healthcare service primarily for seniors, developmentally disabled individuals and their caregivers.
This award marks the second consecutive year of funding from the NJ Office of Faith Based Initiatives (NJOFBI) Social Entrepreneur and Enterprise Development (SE2D I) Project. SE2D I funding supports community based organizations that implement a revenue generating model whose purpose is to address social issues in creative and innovative ways. The recent investment to the REFIL program highlights PRAHD’s immense success in its dual approach of addressing social issues faced by not only the client through Certified Home Health Aides, but also issues faced by the caregiver who is provided supportive services offered by PRAHD.
