On September 6, Gándara’s Springfield Family Resource Center was given a Governor’s Citation in recognition of the work it has done for families displaced by Hurricane Maria.

Last October, the Family Resource Center hosted a clothing drive, provided necessities to those in need, helped evacuees find apartments in the area, and held an acupuncture clinic to help reduce the evacuees’ stress.

There were several Gándara Center hurricane relief efforts, including counseling services and a fundraiser for victims of the storm, as well as the #GandaraStandsWithPR assistance plan for employees’ families affected by the storm.

The Springfield Family Resource Center provides a number of resources for families in the Springfield community, including help with navigating through housing, education, courts and legal systems as well as health insurance, EBT and behavioral health services.
