We’ve shared offices, we’ve shared desks, at one point we made copies at the rate of 30 seconds per page. At every point, we’ve brought new meaning to the phrase “other duties as assigned”…all in the name of building something bigger than ourselves.
In our first office on 18th Street, we had clients sitting and waiting on the hallway stairs because we didn’t have space for a waiting area — now Latinos Progresando is the standard bearer for quality and professional service in the immigration legal field.
Today, entire families, from more than 40 countries around the world trust Latinos Progresando and choose us to guide them through some of the most critical points in their lives. We’re now serving the children and grandchildren of some of our very first clients.
We’ve grown from one to 16 employees (and we’re still going!). We’ve done that hiring from the community, training and promoting from within. Right now, seven of our full-time, professional staff were once agency clients and five are Marshall Square/Little Village residents.
