Fundación Vida Digna (Life of Dignity Foundation) is run by Sr. Fanny Bolaños Suarez, a Santa Mariana Sisters from Ecuador in an area on the outskirts Durán called Una Sola Fuerza. Like Arbolito and Mount Sinai, Una Sola Fuerza is an under-resourced community of immigrants. The center has a holistic approach emphasizing a healthy mind, body and spirit, and especially supports women and youth. They offer exercise classes, prayer and meditation, a nutrition program, and a variety of holistic health care to people who would otherwise not be able to afford these services. RdC volunteers have worked at the center supporting the holistic health activities and currently help facilitate Semillitas, an afternoon tutoring and homework help for local children.

Proyecto Salesiano Refuerzo Escolar (Tutoring/Homework Help) is an after-school program run by the Salesians. Located in Voluntad de Dios, a community very close to Mount Sinai, the program serves children who are at risk of living on the streets. Many participants have been in and out of school, have worked on the streets themselves or have siblings who have.  RdC volunteers assist running the program, which provides homework help, workshops, recreation, and a snack. They also have opportunities to assist in home visits to do outreach with the parents and assess the living situations of the children. Most of the children who attend come from Mt. Sinai and the surrounding invasion communities. During school vacation two other RdC volunteers joined the program to assist a vacation summer camp.
