Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Education Program

We offer free training to help immigrant families achieve their economic goals.

Our award-winning ESL program has been operating since 1994 and has
successfully taught English to hundreds of immigrants. Program
participants learn essential communication skills that are key to
obtaining long-term employment and becoming wholly self-sufficient. 

Every Tuesday morning, informational workshops are held in Spanish at
the Day Workers' Center to help workers adapt to and understand better
their community and their rights in this country. Workshop topics are
often suggested by the participants and include issues surrounding
health and preventative care, workers’ rights, civil rights and
discrimination, tax preparation, work safety, and more.

Population(s) Served
People of Latin American descent
Indigenous peoples

We connect newly arrived immigrants with job opportunities.

Through our Day Workers' Center, men and women are connected with
employers and temporary jobs that often lead to full-time, permanent
employment. They also receive training in on-the-job health and safety
and directly participate in the Center's day-to-day operation.

Population(s) Served
Immigrants and migrants
People of Latin American descent

We give Latina immigrant women the means and opportunities to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

Our Household Helpers Project, which began in 2007, helps women gain
and retain jobs to achive economic stability, while empowering them to
increase skills and build relationships for future employment
opportunities. The program includes financial literacy and
English-language training programs, as well as weekly meetings during
which women discuss job challenges and work on alternative strategies
for gaining more control over their work environment.

Through the Household Helpers Project, women build skills in order
to move from dependence on the program to place them in domestic jobs
to the ability to build relationships with customers and seek out their
own jobs.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Immigrants and migrants
