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.
