Centro Latino was started in 1999 and has been vital to countless Latino families in our community. We provide an after school program (Abriendo Puertas), English as a Second Language classes, Immigration services, Diversity training as well as one to one interactions with hundreds of clients every month. We have been a much appreciated asset of many businesses and government agencies in our area with whom we have alliances and we have endless stories from our clients confirming the positive impact we have had on their lives and families.
We are proud of our work and we are certain that we provide a very much needed service for a still growing population. But we are currently in a financial crisis and need immediate support.
Whether you are an old friend of Centro Latino or a new one, please consider a donation at this time and give generously so that we can keep our doors open. Go to the Donation site at the bottom of this page where your money can be received in a safe and rapid fashion through PayPal.

Marie had been with us in one role or another for over a decade. As our executive director she was a visionary, a tireless worker and was instrumental in developing Centro Latino into the program it is today. It is with mixed feelings that we announce that she is no longer an employee of Centro Latino. We will miss her, but know she will excel at her new job. We wish her the best. The telephone number associated with Marie, will no longer be available. All questions or problems should be directed to our Director of Client Services, Angelita Sanchez at (828) 330-0477.
