Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton, inspired by the Scriptures as reflected in Catholic Social Teaching, alleviates human suffering and improves the quality of life of individuals and families, especially the poor and vulnerable, through service, advocacy and community building. El Centro de Recursos (Family Resource Center) is a multi -service, family-focused community resource center and community building program serving Mercer County with special emphasis on meeting the needs of the Latino community in Trenton.
Founded in 1999, El Centro has been a trusted resource in the Spanish-speaking community for those seeking help with basic needs, job training, ESL, parenting classes and immigration services. No appointments are required and most services are offered free of charge.
El Centro provides experienced, BIA-accredited immigration services and has helped many residents achieve citizenship and naturalization. Legal assistance for immigration services requires a modest fee.
As part of the Latino community, El Centro’s annual events draw thousands. Events include:
- An annual Health Fair
- A Three Kings celebration
- A Procession of the Cross through Trenton on Good Friday
Children also receive assistance through mentoring and after-school programs, as well as a two-week summer camp program.
