Mi querida comunidad,

We have weathered challenges both locally and nationally to our values, our families and our future.
But personally, I feel stronger than ever because I am reminded that despite these challenges, our community is resilient because you have been by our side.
Centro grew significantly in 2019 –  expanding general support services, growing our career tracks to become national models, awarding a record amount of educational scholarships, deepening collaborations that emphasize a commitment to the safety of our families, and organizing meaningful gatherings driven by, and for, our community.
As we look to 2020, I am filled with hope at the vision of a strong future we can build together, where our families can heal and thrive together. Centro is, and must continue to be, the heart of our community –  We commit to ensure that it will be and hope you will too.

Join us as we grow the seeds of hope, of esperanza, for the future of our community. Please stand with Centro this year and beyond and take action locally for our families by making a gift today.

Join us as we continue to mobilize alongside our school partners, our city, our county, state and national representatives for the safety of our children and families. Invest in our mission and programs because you believe in a future inclusive of a vibrant Latino community. Share with others the importance of our vision for our community because you too are committed to securing it. 

Can I count on you?

In the spirit of Esperanza

Mil gracias!
