More About Centro Romero

Culture

Inside and outside Centro Romero, the culture of the organization has always been focused on the family.  Clients that have utilized one of our services will come back with a family member to utilize another.  The doors of Centro Romero have been opened to children in our youth program who have gone on to better education after receiving aid from our volunteers.  Some who have utilized our legal assistance have come back as volunteers to aid their community.  We have even had clients who have appreciated our hard work come back with enough homemade food for the entire organization as a thank you.
