Serving, Advocating and Equipping

Donations from our community is what keeps Centro Latino strong and growing. 


You can safely donate through PayPal or the credit card of your choice. 


A one time donation is always appreciated...or set up a monthly pledge.


Your help is changing lives!


$25 pays for the cost of an hour of time with client services to explain, translate and help resolve a clients concern. 

$50 pays for the cost of snacks for all of our after school students for an entire month.

$75 pays for the cost of 1 student to attend our after school program for an entire month. 

$250 allows us to provide an outside cultural event that our children would otherwise never have a chance to see.
