A home for Latino cultures, Centro serves the needs of our diverse community by promoting personal growth and empowerment.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, we provided more than 1,600 TriMet fare relief passes; empowered at least 231 individuals with career, business and professional development services; eliminated language and information barriers by enrolling 665 people in the Oregon Health Plan; and distributed over $100,000 in donated food to more than 200 low-income families.
Everyone who gives $50 or more gets a $5 Tamale Boy certificate. Everyone who gives more than $100 enters a raffle for a $500 Nike gift card. The Resers Foundation will match the first $5,000 donated.
“After 47 years of establishing Latinx-specific resources for the education, well-being, and prosperity of our people, they’re at a point where they can advocate for social and climate justice. In collaboration with Centro, we’re getting into civic positions where we can create a safer and more welcoming community for all.” —Narce Rodriguez
