Holyoke FRC Supporting Hurricane Maria Victims Coming to Western Mass.

US and Puerto Rican flags

The Holyoke Family Resource Center, Enlace de Familias Center, was featured in a Western Massachusetts News story October 16, highlighting its work to aid Puerto Rican migrants following Hurricane Maria. 

The article and video include an interview with the executive director of the Holyoke Family Resource Center, Betty Medina Lichenstien. She shares the success Holyoke has had in caring for incoming families, and reports "that on Tuesday alone, 102 families came through Holyoke."

"Holyoke always steps up. Holyoke has the largest Puerto Rican population per capita in the United States — in the United States, that speaks for itself. We have people coming here from Springfield, from Chicopee, from Westfield. We are known to be a community that we give it our all, we help those in need," Lichtenstein added in the story.
