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. Contact: Cynthia Caraballo 510-224-0404.

Thinking about having a party, P.R.U.M.A. Center is available for rent.  Members get a discounted rental rate.  Full bar available.  210 people capacity. Great for family reunion parties, dinner/dance, bridal & baby showers.  Contact:

Martha Almaguer 510 -386-1637 for rates and availability.

​​President’s Message



Hello Members!             

I hope that everyone is doing well, as for me, I’m ready for a change in the weather! 

Over the last 2 years with the death of some of our Members, we realized that the information in the Members files haven’t been updated in quite a while. So, with the help of Trustee Yolanda Ramirez, we created an updated form and it’s now ready to be sent out to the Members in good standing.  Since it’s the beginning of the year, this form will be sent to you as you pay your dues.  

Please keep an eye out for it and as soon as you receive it, please fill out the form then return to PRUMA right away.  Each Member must fill one out… so if you are married and you are both members, you should receive 2 forms.

This is a very important issue and we thank you for helping us to get it done!

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