El Centro

The Center for Hispanic Resources (El Centro) – as a part of the foundation’s Women and Children’s Programs – was developed in response to the largely unmet needs of Spanish-speaking individuals in the Chester community. Its mission is to help Delaware County’s Spanish speaking residents learn about and navigate access to the resources in their communities.

The Center for Hispanic Resources is a one-stop-shop that connects program participants and other individuals to a wide range of services, including:

  • Completing applications
  • Translation
  • Appointment scheduling
  • Health education
  • Agency referrals

Interpretation and translation services are also available through several of the foundation’s other programs, including Cribs for Kids, Healthy Start, Nurse-Family Partnership and WIC.

El Centro is located at The Ruth Bennett Learning Center, and is open virtually, on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
