El Centro Hispano, Inc

Our Mission El Centro Hispano’s mission has not really changed since its beginning more than forty two years ago – to assist, support, and strengthen Hispanic families; to help them become self- sufficient; and to ease their transition into their new culture while maintaining and enriching their own.

 

Our Work

El Centro Hispano accomplishes this by offering a variety of programs and by presenting bilingual and cross-cultural activities throughout the year.  Here is just a sampling of some of the services offered:

  • Educational programs

  • Health, housing, and employment referrals

  • Immigration referrals

  • Written and oral translation assistance

  • Counseling and advocacy

  • Mentoring and tutorial programs

  • English language classes

  • Technology classes

  • Sponsoring of Girl and Boy Scout troops

  • Scholarships for high school students

 

Because of its closeness to and knowledge of the Hispanic community, El Centro Hispano is called upon by many agencies and organizations, including the local school system, to communicate important information to the Hispanic community.  

As the needs of our community have changed, so has El Centro Hispano.  In 2008, in an effort to improve our clients’ computer literacy, the staff and Board of Directors began a capital campaign to build a state-of-the-art Technology Center.  Within a year’s time, the center was built and our clients – from youngsters to seniors – have been flocking to classes at the center.  

As the area’s Hispanic population continues to grow, so does the need for the type of programs and services offered by El Centro Hispano.  Every year since its founding in 1974, more and more clients have received direct services at El Centro Hispano.
