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.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM CENTRO UNIDO
"To create secure spaces, establish cross-cultural partnerships and promote social justice, health equity, and inclusive education opportunities for our Latinx community and beyond."
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.
