Mission


Center For Latino Progress – CPRF mission is to advance the socio-economic conditions of the community at large, with emphasis on Hispanics, through education, training, supportive services, leadership development, and advocacy. We offer culturally competent services and programs that foster individual and community growth, and create economic opportunities for all. We specialize in providing cost-effective programs to the marginalized and disadvantaged residents of Hartford and neighboring communities, in order to help them enter the economic and social mainstream.

Our objective is to see that the people we serve have the skills and competencies needed to succeed in employment, become stable members of their communities, gain civic engagement, and achieve financial sustainability. To reach these goals, the Center has created models of contextualized vocational programs, comprehensive support services, and civic/leadership educational activities.

In addition, the Center advocates for the betterment of Latino communities at local, state and national levels in partnership with statewide and national organizations
