Financial Support

Few if any organizations offer so much for so little. Centro operates on a minimal budget and since we receive little if any government support, we rely on individuals, organizations and events for our funding.

You can help us by committing a contribution monthly, quarterly or yearly or just make a one-time contribution. If you are willing to contribute or pledge, please contact Patty at SCIC (562) 983-1665 and we will get a form to you or take your information. Every dollar helps!


If you have time, Centro has only one full-time staff person, its program director.  We can always use volunteers including in the following assignments:

  • Landlord/tenant counseling
  • Consumer assistance
  • Immigration
  • Food Bank
  • Clothing Center
  • Receptionist/Office Work
  • Computer Data Entry

Centro is also currently looking for a bilingual (Spanish/English) piano teacher to go with our donated piano.


Help Centro help those in need.

  • Donate Food
  • Donate Clothes
  • Donate Furniture

Either come to Centro (we’ll unload for you) or call for pick up.
