Centro Cultural

Mission

A home for Latino cultures, Centro serves the needs of our diverse community by promoting personal growth and empowerment. 

Bottom Line for Portland

Responding to the surging needs of the Latinx community during the COVID-19 pandemic, Centro circulated $227,942.00 for rent, groceries and medical expenses to 1,087 people who won’t receive government assistance. We facilitated more than $2 million in loan applications, helping small businesses keep employees on payroll. And for direct service, we supported 176-and-counting quarantined families’ needs to make full recoveries from COVID-19 and distributed 8,400-plus food boxes to the community.

“As someone who’s spent a long time serving Washington County, I’ve witnessed the energy and soul Centro pours into our Latino community. Their pandemic response was nothing short of remarkable, community-driven leadership, and well in their nature. Centro has become an institution for resiliency, hope and trust.” —Pam Treece, Washington County commissioner
