One Human Family Coalition, OHFC, was born out of the wake of Hurricane Maria. Our organization was first responsible for refurbishing an abandoned hospital to serve as a Free Healthcare Clinic for disaster relief. On October 13, 2017, this medical facility opened its doors for the first time in nearly a decade in order to provide free primary care services and prescription medications to those struggling to recover from the effects of Hurricane Maria. The Free Clinic operated from October 2017 until June 2018 serving more than 2,000 patients and distributing more than 250,000 lbs of donated supplies.
Our mission is very simple: to provide immediate medical and non-medical support and to develop and implement sustainable and long-term solutions for the issues that many face in Puerto Rico. We will not allow any citizen of Puerto Rico to feel forgotten, not now, not later. It is not about showing up, it is about coming back, and we will always come back.
Through disaster relief operations and guided by the needs of the people, OHFC developed a revolutionary new municipal-wide Safety Net Healthcare Program. This program is designed to provide free primary care services and to support and guide each individual and family toward healthcare independence.
Music for Life focuses on the application of music in order to improve an individual's mental, emotional, and physical well-being in both educational and healthcare settings. The power of music is a beautiful thing to witness, and is a language that needs no translation.
OHFC Volunteer Program coordinates volunteer groups to provide medical care and non-medical support to small communities in need. As a volunteer, you will use your talents in small, underserved communities to make a difference in the lives of the beautiful people of Puerto Rico, all while experiencing the magic of the island in a very unique way. OHFC began coordinating volunteer groups to Puerto Rico in February of 2018 and has since guided more than 200 volunteers to the island.
