Inauguration of the new Hogar Ruth Library

Hogar Ruth Library

January 30, 2019 • We are proud to present the Grand Opening of the new Library at the Hogar Ruth organization.  The library has been organized in a small building that had suffered from Hurricane Maria but has been repaired, painted and equipped.

With generous donations and support from the Donor Advised Fund (DAF) and by The Rotary Club in Brown County, Indiana, the library is now open at Hogar Ruth.

Donations have allowed us to purchase: desks, chairs, tables; shelving; 6 computers and 2 printers; a projector, a screen, software, battery backup and some games.  A freezer was also purchased to teach baking skills for the possibility of a earning a future income.

Hogar Ruth is a non-profit domestic violence service shelter near the city Vega Alta in Puerto Rico. Since its establishment in 1984, the shelter has continually expressed its concerns about the absence of specialized services for victims of domestic abuse and survivors of domestic violence and their children. Named after the biblical woman Ruth, it symbolizes a woman who overcomes all obstacles and challenges in life and with determination becomes successful.  Hogar Ruth primarily targets victims of domestic violence, including their daughters and sons, in complete confidentiality.
