Who is PRUMA? Union Puertorriqueña de Ayuda Mutua was organized in May 1937 and incorporated July 7, 1937. Our motto is to "Advance with Progress". The Association was founded by a group of Puerto Ricans who came from Hawaii to the East Bay and wanted to create a benevolent organization to further their people. The purpose for the Association is to help other Puerto Ricans in the San Francisco Bay Area. We bring the Puerto Rican community together keeping the culture alive through our Jibaro music and Puerto Rican food. We hold regular dances and raise funds for educational scholarships and other community benefits. We are proud to have Cynthia Caraballo as our current President.

President’s Message

​​Hello Members!

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the summer weather…. finally were kinda back to normal weather!  So this month we celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July.  Enjoy your time off and please be careful with the fireworks!

So it seems that our members are too busy to attend the General Meetings.  If you are an elderly Member and would like to attend our General Meeting, PLEASE ask someone in your family to please bring you, so that you can at least get out of the house and fellowship with other Members.  If you are a younger Member, PLEASE come out, so that we know you still care about your Club.  It’s difficult enough to try to keep a club going when there’s not enough help BUT when there’s no participation we start to wonder what’s next.  We haven’t had a quorum for the General Meeting in 3 months.  We did have good fellowship time with those that did take the time to come, but with that being said, some of us could have been doing other things with our families at home instead of making the trip to PRUMA.

If you have any students in your family who plan on continuing their education…PRUMA’s Scholarship Packet is now available… go to for more info and packet.


Time is Precious, don’t take anyone for granted, no one is promised tomorrow…..
