Our mission is to create a hub for the Richmond Hispanic/Latino community that opens opportunities for economic and social integration, family success, and community leadership.
The Sacred Heart Center, founded by a Jesuit priest in 1990, is a non-profit community center working collaboratively with the surrounding neighborhoods of South Richmond. The Center has been known for collaborative community programming and high quality early childhood programs. In 2010, in response to the changing demographics of the neighborhood, the Sacred Heart Center refocused its programming to serve a growing Hispanic community. Our mission is to create a community hub serving Richmond's Hispanic/Latinos, building on the strengths of the community and valuing cultural diversity while fostering opportunities for economic integration, self realization and community leadership. Our current focus is adult and youth education designed to strengthen families, create support communities, and open opportunities for adults to learn English, further their education in their own language, or learn life skills important for success in a new country. Our courses include ESL, GED in Spanish, Family Literacy, College and Career Bound, Citizenship Preparation classes, and our Latino Leadership Institute. Other classes and services through community partnerships include health education, life skills, classes in legal rights and responsibilities, as well as food assistance, mental health support, consular ID services, and tax preparation. The Center is also a gathering place for local service providers to network, share information, and best practices.
