RIVER FUND: 25 Years on the Frontline

The Castro Family exemplifies the work of the RIVER FUND in taking poverty personally. Getting into the details of a family's situation, we seek to find immediate solutions to provide assistance, while simultaneously moving the children onto a path that could potentially offer them a better future.
