Service Work in the Dominican Republic
MEETING URGENT MEDICAL NEEDS
We realize that before people can even think about educating themselves and starting businesses, they need to have their immediate health concerns met.
ACES provides monetary and personnel support to communities in the DR. We sponsor clinics with medical equipment and supplies. We organize doctors, nurses, and dentists to volunteer their time in the clinics.

BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE FOR DOMINICANS
ACES recognizes the importance of education in alleviating poverty, so we built and supported a school in the Cabon district of Santo Domingo community by providing educational supplies and teachers.
We look forward to expanding our education programs and providing a brighter future for the DR.
TEACHING AND TRAINING ENTREPRENEURS
We understand that most people want to be productive and self-sustaining, but simply lack the training and resources to do so.
We facilitate the development of sustainable businesses from conception to completion. From training woodworkers, to teaching sustainable techniques to farmers, we look for any opportunity to develop the Dominican economy.
WHO WE ARE
ACES, an acronym for Advancing Communities by Educating and Serving, is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that works tirelessly to improve the lives of impoverished people in the Dominican Republic.
We realize that eliminating poverty will not be accomplished by just one method, so we don’t limit ourselves by having a narrowly constrained formula for helping communities in the DR. Rather, through our connections on the ground in the Dominican Republic, we work to build rapport with communities and identify their most pressing needs. Then we design solutions to solve these needs in a sustainable manor. While we realize the necessity of temporary relief at times, we primarily focus on sustainable solutions that will eliminate poverty and improve the standard of living for the long-term.
