El Concilio is celebrating its 50th year as the largest Latino community-based non-profit agency in California's Central Valley and premier social services provider to the region’s underserved, working low-income and at-risk communities regardless of ethnicity, race or immigration status.
Founded in 1968 as one of the nation's first migrant worker civil rights institutions, El Concilio's mission has been consistent with the purpose of "empowering diverse communities in California's Central Valley to thrive."
Today, El Concilio has grown to become the Central Valley’s heart and home for those wishing to achieve a better life. We assist over 25,000 individuals and families annually though our diverse initiatives, with the aim of helping them achieve self-sufficiency through education, training, legal services, workshops, counseling and referrals.
Through our multiple departments and expansive bi-lingual programs meeting the needs of infants, youths, adults, families and seniors, El Concilio believes that people, once empowered to help themselves become significant assets to the community at large, and in turn empower others. We stand proud with the Central Valley knowing we are building stronger communities together.
