Mission:
We exist to empower our Latino families to thrive in our communities by creating opportunities for advancement and building bridges that unite and strengthen us all.
Results:
Thanks to the generosity of many caring individuals, businesses, community partners and public and private funders, we successfully served 1,900 people last year. We helped our 100th person pass the Citizenship exam. We helped 62 people improve their English with the dedicated support of 48 volunteer tutors. Over 700 people acquired a Mexican passport or consular ID card and collectively they saved thousands of dollars and time by not having to drive to Portland. And, finally, because of our community's support, we were able to hire an Assistant Director in September to help expand our programs and services.
