The Secretary of the Social Assistance System (SSAS) was in charge of diagnosing the needs of the families and at the end of the year, 216 children and adolescents were assisted, 1,273 food pantries were distributed and a total of 3 million 440 thousand pesos were distributed to 172 families to provide them with 20 thousand pesos to cover their most urgent needs, mainly for housing and food.

The associations that work in coordination with the SSAS to assist this population group are: Galilea 2000 and Centro de Apoyo Niños con Cáncer, among others.
