Centro Unido
Latino Americano

A Non profit that provides services that reach the community while also advocating for the Latinx people who face systemic barriers that hinder their growth.

We strive to advance Latinx and underserved communities when faced with a barrier that they have no control over.

 

Some of our programs are born from the inclination to mend families who face barriers that have hindered their economic, social, health related and environmental growth.

ABOUT US

Centro Unido Latino Americano is a non-profit organization serving the rural community of McDowell County and surrounding areas. Our resources reach the community at large while also assisting the Latinx residents with common barriers that can obstruct their livelihood. Translation for people who do not speak English, food for families that don't get much to eat, access to healthcare for for the uninsured and much more. With the services we offer, we hope to raise potential for more social integration, economic opportunities and cultural justice.

WAYS WE HELP

Feeding the community

Our Food Pantry Distribution is every other Thursday from Noon to 2p.m.


Food boxes are loaded into your car so you don't have to get out and even if you are running late, don't worry, we will still arrange a box from inside the office and bring it to you. 
Our food pantry is not exclusive to Thursdays, if you need food boxes in an emergency situation, let us know and we will fix a box for you.

Relieving systematic barriers.

CULA has made a collaboration with the Mexican and Guatemalan Consulate in order to assist people with legal documents.

Through this collaboration we've been able to give assistance to over 700 people across McDowell and surrounding areas recover passports, I.D.'s, Birth Certificates and more.
