Over 120 people toured the Open House showcasing the PRCCs major programs including El Rescate, the transitional housing for LGTBQ youth.

El Rescate celebrated its one-year anniversary this past Saturday. The day ended with a performance and book signing at Café Teatro Batey Urbano. The show at Batey included Caridad “La Bruja” De La Luz and Batey Urbano’s very own Michael Reyes.
