Psychologist and social workers

individual counseling. They also work with staff to develop effective
strategies to help each child reach his or her full potential.
: A doctor and nurse are
available at various times through the week and as needed to provide health
assessments, preventive and minor acute care and health promotion.
A whole host of others
: From the cook to
the director to the program volunteers – everyone at Proniño has been selected
because of their commitment and care for the children. This team approach
builds the security, trust and structure that has been so lacking in these
children’s lives. While the activities, education and the facilities are
important - it is the people of Proniño that are the heart and soul of the
program. Their hard work, dedication and love are the irreplaceable ingredients
that make rehabilitation a reality.
