SHARE USA, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) community based organization established in June of 2000 for the purpose of helping those who are in need of medical or financial aid and who do not have other sufficient resources available to them.

Description:
The organization also provides financial and educational support to the Eva M. Russell School and the Casa Monte Plata Orphanage, both of which are located in the impoverished town of Monte Plata in the Dominican Republic.

The Eva M. Russell School provides an education and two meals a day to approximately 200 kindergarten through eighth grade students.

The Casa Monte Plata orphanage currently provides a home for eighteen children with the goal of ultimately providing for forty. Both facilities are funded completely by private donations.

History:
Since its inception in 2000, Share USA has helped numerous local individuals and families in providing financial and educational support.
In 2005 Share USA extended itself to include the international community through donations received for the purpose of helping the children of the rural town of Monte Plata in the Dominican Republic.

The Eva M. Russell School in Monte Plata was started by Ramon Prenza and his wife Juana in a chicken coop about 18 years ago. It now accommodates 185 students in grades K through 8. In addition to their education, a free breakfast and hot lunch are provided daily. For many of the children, these are the only meals they will eat all week. In the summer of 2006, the Prenzas started the Casa Monte Plata Orphanage for children who otherwise would have no place to live. It currently consists of two houses each with 8-10 children who reside there with house parents. Both the school and the orphanage are completely funded through private donations.
