One of SER National’s principle goals is to empower members of the Latino and other underserved communities by strengthening their individual capabilities. Economic, social, educational, and political empowerment are critical to achieving self-sufficiency. Through a variety of programs and services, SER provides individuals with the necessary tools to become fully empowered. We believe empowerment is an essential characteristic that all persons must possess because these individuals are not just more productive and contributing members of society; they are also more confident of their own abilities.

SER National Puerto Rico Earthquake Relief Fund

Just after a little over two years since Hurricane Maria devastated the island, Puerto Ricans are again being challenged by another natural disaster.

Since late last December, a series of powerful earthquakes hit Puerto Rico, including a 6.4-magnitude earthquake which struck on January 7, 2020. Thousands on the island are facing power outages and physical and emotional crises. In fact, many Puerto Ricans are sleeping outside for fear another tremor may hit, and thousands more remain in government-run shelters. Experts predict aftershocks may continue for some time.
