Centro Cultural of Washington County was founded in 1972 by a group of immigrant families who decided to make their permanent home in this area to raise their families. These families brought together their dreams and talents to create an organization that has been a leader in the transformation of the Latin culture in Washington County.
Centro has been a reliable source of tools for the empowerment of people throughout its history. The organization has played, and will Continue to play, a crucial role in the healthy development of our increasingly diverse community of Washington County. Centro is a trusted member of the Latino Community and the community at large. We serve primarily Western Washington County by providing education and empowerment programs such as English as a Second Language, Spanish Literacy, Computer Technology, Cultural Values, Leadership Training and community organizing, Information and Referral.
