  • Mission:
  • MISSION: To create an environment in which the rapidly growing Latino community has opportunities allowing them to effectively participate in and contribute the success of Pierce County.

  • History:
  • Centro Latino was established in 1983 and incorporated in the State of Washington in February of 1990. Its original purpose was to provide charitable services and support to low-income and minorities in the city of Tacoma and surrounding Pierce County areas. Over time we have shifted our approach to individual, family and community development. The success of our children depends on their doing well in school, which is directly related to the educational and economic well being of the family as a whole. It is our belief that we cannot permanently raise the quality of life for Latino youth and their families if we do not first create stable social support systems for these same families.
