Managing the Essentials
A family with three children, one of whom is undergoing chemotherapy, came to Puertas Abiertas for assistance when the father, the primary wage earner, needed to take time off to be with his sick child. With the mother ill and taking care of a new baby, their situation was dire.
Puertas Abiertas became a liaison for the family and the many channels they need to navigate, along with providing immediate financial assistance. The organization continues to act as an essential resource for this family.
