How to Help Puerto Rico

Please note that I have no affiliation with any of these organizations. I have compiled this list of organizations that myself, colleagues, or friends had personal experience with. The goal is to bring attention to organizations that may not be receiving media attention, but that we know are working directly with and for communities in Puerto Rico. I hope this list can serve as a tool to help support Puerto Rico in its recovery and rebuilding following the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria. Feel free to share this document widely. --Vanessa Díaz, Dartmouth College
