Founded in 1978, per the invitation of the U.S. Department of Labor, the organization opened its doors as the National Puerto Rican Forum. In 1993 it would become known as the Connecticut Puerto Rican Forum and finally in 2011, the Center for Latino Progress – CPRF as it is known today. The Center for Latino Progress is the only Latino serving organization in the state of Connecticut recognized by the Bureau of Immigration Appeals (BIA) to provide legal immigration services. The Center has BIA accredited representatives with legal immigration expertise.
