Helping Hands

Voluntarios

Hogar Cuna San Cristóbal ha desarrollado un programa de voluntariado con el objetivo de reunir a ciudadanos comprometidos que deseen aportar sus habilidades y talentos para complementar los servicios brindados por el hogar y contribuir al logro de nuestras metas en beneficio de los menores a nuestro cuidado. Este programa también ofrece a los ciudadanos la oportunidad de canalizar su responsabilidad social, expresar su interés en el servicio comunitario y contribuir a la construcción de un mejor país.

El programa está diseñado de acuerdo con la política pública de voluntariado de Puerto Rico, establecida por la Ley Núm. 261 del 8 de septiembre de 2004. Este enfoque garantiza que nuestras prácticas de voluntariado estén alineadas con los principios y regulaciones establecidos por la legislación local, asegurando la transparencia, la legalidad y la eficacia de nuestra iniciativa. Estamos comprometidos a seguir los lineamientos de la ley y a proporcionar a nuestros voluntarios un marco estructurado que cumpla con los estándares más altos en términos de participación voluntaria y servicio comunitario.

Voluntariado

Según la ley Núm. 261 de 8 de septiembre de 2004, se entiende por voluntariado el alistamiento libre y voluntario de ciudadanos y ciudadanas a participar en actividades de interés social o comunitario, sin que medie obligación que no sea puramente cívica ni retribución de clase alguna y siempre que dicha participación se dé dentro del ámbito de organizaciones públicas o privadas.

Voluntario

Según la ley Núm. 261 de 8 de septiembre de 2004, voluntario es un individuo que, en conjunto con otros y conforme al concepto de voluntariado definido en el Artículo 3 de la Ley, presta servicios a terceros o para beneficio de terceros, libre y voluntariamente y sin que medie remuneración o beneficio material alguno.

Nota: Toda persona que brinde servicios al Hogar Cuna San Cristóbal, debido a que una institución se lo requiera como parte de sus requisitos, será calificado como horas comunitarias o apostolado en el caso de los Colegios y no como un Voluntario, ya que media un tercero en la relación entre la persona y la entidad y así está especificado en la Ley del voluntario en el artículo 3.

Resumen del proceso para ser parte del equipo de voluntarios del Hogar Cuna San Cristóbal

  • Which children can be adopted?
    Children whose biological mother/father, faced with adverse circumstances that prevent them from parenting the child, freely and voluntarily expresses the decision that their child remains under the guardianship of the state (voluntarily renounces their homeland rights power) for subsequent delivery for adoption. Children who were removed from their family environment due to a situation of abuse, as typified in Law No. 57-2023 and their parents were deprived of parental authority, since there is no provision for them to return to that environment familiar.
  • Do adoption and/or the services offered by the Hogar Cuna San Cristóbal cost?
    Initial orientation requires a donation. Adoption in Puerto Rico is free of cost, the only thing that involves cost is your legal representation before the Court for legal adoption.
  • If I reside outside of Puerto Rico, can I adopt?
    Our license as an adoption agency allows us to work adoption processes solely and exclusively with people residing in Puerto Rico. If you reside outside of Puerto Rico, you should contact an adoption unit of the Department of the Family so they can guide you. For more information, please call the telephone numbers provided below: TELEPHONES ADOPTION UNITS TELÉFONOS UNIDADES ADOPCIÓN
  • How long does it take to complete the adoption process?
    Each case is unique, and there is no estimated time for the adoption process. The wait time is likely to be longer for those who wish to adopt only infants compared to families willing to adopt older children or adolescents.
  • If I start the adoption process with the Hogar Cuna San Cristóbal, do I automatically enter the State Voluntary Adoption Registry (REVA)?
    No, Hogar Cuna San Cristóbal is a private, non-profit organization that acts as an independent adoption agency of the Department of the Family. To be part of the State Voluntary Adoption Registry (R.E.V.A.), you must seek guidance directly from the Department of the Family. It is recommended to apply for adoption at all available agencies to expand your opportunities.
  • What other services does the adoption program offer?
    Importantly, HCSC offers additional services for international adoptions. These entail a rate and you will need to contact us for more information.
