Centro de Informacion is one of many vital organizations impacted by the lack of an Illinois state budget.

Because of stop-gap funding in late 2016, we have been able to provide application workshops for immigrants seeking citizenship, assistance to immigrants seeking health benefits for which they qualify, and act as an official Illinois Welcoming Center for refugees.

Without state funding, these programs will not continue.

Centro de Informacion exists to educate and empower our Hispanic neighbors in Elgin, Illinois, and the surrounding community, and it is these neighbors (among other marginalized persons served by fellow non-profit agencies) who will feel much of the strain from a funding shortfall. Centro anticipates a loss of approximately $110,000 this year.

If you or someone you love has benefited from our services, or if you believe in the great value of our organization, we and our constituents would be grateful for your generous support.
