Mission Statement

The mission of The Guatemalan-Maya Center is two-fold:

To assist, advocate and provide services to Maya refugees and others as appropriate in areas including, but not limited to, education, health, immigration, cultural continuity and family preservation and empowerment consistent with the Maya culture as we embrace our new environment.

To advocate for those inalienable rights that are given to all people through the natural process of life so that the Maya may be able to spiritually live in peace.

Description

The Center provides unique social services primarily to the Guatemalan-Maya refugee population, but also to all families in need, using a family-centered approach to preserve native language, culture and wisdom while promoting stability, resiliency and efficacy for all.

We provide students with after-school programs, parent-child home programs to enhance home learning, and adult English classes.

The Center opened "The GMC Boutique" which provides used clothing, household items, and hygiene items to all in need.

We also partner with Department of Children & Families to assist with applications for SNAP (aka food stamps), Medicaid, and Cash Assistance for eligible households.
