SINCE 1969

The Spanish Community Center helps improve the quality of life for Latinos, immigrants, and low-income people through educational and social services.

Overview

Today’s Center welcomes all members of the community regardless of race or ethnic origin. We are as multi-ethnic, multi-racial, multi-lingual, and multi-generational. 

Early Childhood and Education

We offer a two-way bilingual, year round day care for children ages 2 through 5. We utilize the Creative Curriculum, a research-based early childhood education program. We direct our instructional lesson plan toward kindergarten readiness skills through our Head Start partnership. 

Social  Services

Through the Immigrant Family Resource Program, IL Welcoming Center, and Family Advocacy Center, we serve as a one-stop shop for individuals and families who are afraid or unaware of where to go for help. We provide resource and referral, linguistic and culturally competent case management, weekly food pantry, and vouchers for household goods and clothing assistance when resources permit.

Citizenship and Immigration 

Our center’s Citizenship and Immigration Services serve all nationalities and countries of origin. We are a U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Services’ Community Based Organization and are registered with the Illinois Attorney General for immigration services. All Immigration services are only provided to eligible individuals.

Adult Education

This includes English as a Second Language classes, citizenship workshops, computer literacy, parenting classes, among others in partnership with local organizations.
