Hostos Helping

Hostos Helping: Message from President David Gomez regarding Disaster Relief

Hostos Community College has set up this site to offer our community and friends an updated list of international, national, and local government and non-governmental organizations and coalitions working towards the recovery of Mexico and the Caribbean.

We have worked to include coalitions and organizations led by respected colleagues in different agencies and fields.

Use this guide to help you decide how, when, and where to help. Read through it, inform yourself, and help however you can.

If you have information on other efforts across the region and the country, please send correspondence to

Open/Close section FEMA

FEMA is looking for individuals to work in customer service and logistics. If you are interested and a current resident of Puerto Rico, email your resume and include "Puerto Rico" in the subject line. More information here.
