Spanish Catholic Center

For more than 50 years, the Spanish Catholic Center has been offering medical and dental clinics, job training programs, English classes, a food pantry and case-management services.

The center also offers holistic services to immigrants. The multicultural staff speaks more than eight languages and has experience working with individuals from dozens of cultures.

Clients at Catholic Charities come from all walks of life – ages, races, religions and ethnic backgrounds. Many suffer from extreme poverty, and we work closely with them to address its underlying causes: unemployment, addiction, education, domestic abuse, severe health issues, and more. To each man, woman, and child who comes to our doors, we strive to offer the best services possible, meeting their immediate needs while empowering them to take steps toward self-sufficiency.
