La Moca Socio-Educational Development Center (CDSEM), is an option for any individual or parent who lacks educational tools and/or resources to meet their academic challenges. It will provide the community with a low-cost space with access to computers, books, educational resources and volunteering.  The project is aimed at impacting low-income communities far from the urban area of the municipality of Peñuelas, which includes nearby communities of the municipalities of Adjuntas and Ponce.

In its beginnings, the center was built with funds from the Fundación Ángel  Ramos.  Ponce NHS, continued to identify funds, so individuals and organizations such as Mr. Melvin Córdova, Banco Santander, Cooperativa de Ahorro y Crédito San Rafael, Ecoeléctrica Natural Gas Power Plant, NeighborWorks America joined this initiative and contributed computers, solar panels, human resources, among other resources. Currently, the funds acquired for the continuity of services come from Empresas Fonalledas and its Fundación Plaza del Caribe.
