Centro La Familia History
Centro La Familia is a community based non-profit organization that has served low income families throughout Fresno County for over 30 years. Founded in 1972 to provide direct advocacy and intervention services to low-income residents. Centro's mission is to empower low-income people to access life sustaining resources and become self-sufficient through education, training and social services.
Over the years, CLFA has evolved from a small, urban centered organization to an agency providing social services and educational programs for many ethnic, underserved, low-income families. Although clients come for services from all over the county, CLFA has become a multi-service center, with advocate staff out-stationed in remote underserved rural communities providing social services on a weekly basis.
Our services are provided to all eligible individuals without regard to race, sex, age, religion, disability or national origin. Centro's services are delivered in a culturally sensitive, confidential manner to enhance the strengths, values and traditions of our clients in English and Spanish. All information we obtain from our clients is strictly confidential
We are here to help! Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 am. - 12:00 pm., and 1:00 pm. - 4:00 pm.
