Centro Cultural Announces Change in Leadership

Centro Cultural Of Washington County

Cornelius OR. Newly elected Board Chair, Alexander Flores, announces the resignation of Centro Cultural’s Executive Director (ED). Centro Cultural’s transition committee has begun a nationwide search for a new ED to assure the selection of a qualified and capable leader who fits well with the organization's vision and values. To facilitate a smooth transition, the executive assistant has been promoted to Administrator. The non-profit organization has welcomed a few new members to the board of directors. The board of directors is actively involved in continuing to fulfill the mission of Centro Cultural to promote education and economic development, increase cultural consciousness, respond to community needs and celebrate understanding among the diverse groups of our community. Contributions to Centro Cultural will continue to play a major role in promoting culture awareness and sustainable programs to benefit the local Latino community. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with our supporters in the future and welcome those who are interested in getting involved with this important work.

We are excited to announce that Centro Cultural has been chosen by United Way of the Columbia-Willamette to participate in a major regional effort to break the cycle of childhood poverty.

Centro Cultural will join with 29 other non-profits in Washington, Clackamas, Clark and Multnomah Counties in a collaborative 3-year “Community Strengthening” effort. All the participating non-profits serve low income and culturally specific communities across the metropolitan area.

Each non-profit will be awarded up to $50,000 per year to complete the critical work of improving outcomes for low-income families and their children.


Christmas Holiday

Here at Centro Cultural those words and the sentiment behind the
meaning is what matters most. Generosity can be challenging, especially
for many families during these difficult economic times. When we have little
for ourselves, we find it hard to justify giving to others, but giving doesn't
necessarily require donating money to those less privileged than
ourselves. [Read More...]
