The Center's goal is to build stronger communities and celebrating the strength, vitality and potential of our Latino community. We implement a variety of programs and services to achieve our goals.

Our team collaborates with community partners to help our local Latino population achieve its full potential. We provide ESL instruction and training to help adults become workplace-ready, build leadership skills, increase financial literacy, provide civic education, empower youth through college readiness programs and career training. We seek to break their barriers with legal immigration services and guide them with multimodal transportation opportunities. We also advocate for local and national legislation that is in the best interest of our Latino community.

During the 42 years of existence, we have the capacity, structure, credibility, to work with adults and youth. We are supported by foundations, individual donors, state, and local government

We have a legacy as shown by former clients, and alumnus.

The organization is legally authorized to provide immigration services. It is a vendor of the Department of Education to provide ABE, ESL and other programs. It is contracted by the local workforce board to serve above 300 youth a year.
