The El Centro is committed to treating everyone with dignity and respect. Founded in 1999, El Centro has been a trusted resource in the Spanish-speaking community for those seeking help with basic needs including: including Advocacy and referrals, Counseling Services, Case Management, Health Navigators, Eye screening, Anger Management classes, ESL, GED, Citizenship classes, rental and utility assistance, and clothing and food. We also provide Immigration services that are accredited by the DOJ. We also provide a two-week summer camp for inner city children.
El Centro works very closely with its faith-based community and government partners to open doors to this highly vulnerable community. El Centro provides platforms for the Spanish-speaking community to address concerns that may be disrupting their quality of life. All of El Centro’s services are provided by bi-lingual/bi-cultural native speakers in various dialects to accommodate the diverse Spanish Community we serve.
El Centro’ annual events draw thousands from throughout Mercer County. Events include:
- An annual Health Fair
- A Three Kings celebration
- A Procession of the Cross through Trenton on Good Friday
