At a time when it seems like chaos and division rule the day, bits of inspiration and kind deeds can seem like revolutionary acts. But each day, and for more than 20 years, Latinos Progresando has opened its doors, greeted each visitor like family, forged bonds between neighbors, and unleashed the enormous potential in our community.
With the support of caring people, we’ve reached families throughout Chicago, from 20 states across the US, and more than 40 countries around the world. From Chicago’s southwest side, Latinos Progresando is empowering community residents as leaders, telling its compelling stories, and convening community organizations, schools, and hundreds of neighbors to promote health, education and peace.
Join us in a season of unity, generosity, and purpose by engaging with Latinos Progresando’s Mission: Uplift.
Whether it’s a senior fulfilling their dream of becoming a US citizen, a student conquering the financial hurdles of higher education, or a woman gaining independence from an abusive partner, each day Latinos Progresando gives people the tools to design the life they want to see for their children and families.
Mission:Uplift is about sharing the amazing stories that come from our community, while at the same time lifting up the mission of Latinos Progresando, an organization that unlocks the potential in everyone who walks through our doors.
Follow us on social media (@latinospro): over the next several weeks, Latinos Progresando will be sharing unique stories of people impacted by our organization, leading up to our 22nd anniversary in January.
