Young Women Educational Transition Housing
In 2014, Virtu constructed Casa Santa Maria, a home for young women to live as they attend a University. This four-year program reached its capacity and Virtu constructed a second home that opened in February 2018.
Health & Wellness Program
Virtu recognizes the importance of health and wellness for children. Not only is this central to focus on academics, but a basic necessity. Virtu supports annual check-ups, dental visits and regular cleanings, and vision appointments and correction for the children of Pedro Atala.
Since 2015, Virtu has focused education efforts on early education, including pre-k. Reading, stimulation, coordination, and social development are all critical areas of focus.
Virtu, along with their generous sponsoring contributors, built a fifth house on the grounds of Hogares Pedro Atala. The new house was completed and opened in February 2020. This will allow HPA to take in 10 additional children in need of a safe place to live.
