Mission Statement

Created in 1996 as a non-profit and tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) community-based organization, we provide social and educational services, first to immigrants in little Haiti, and later to people of all ethnic groups throughout Miami-Dade County.


The Center's mission is to implement strategies improving the quality of life to low-income residents via access to services such as: literacy, family strengthening, youth leadership, delinquency prevention, health and wellness, and emergency food and shelter assistance, leading to self-sufficiency and economic stability.
