At Centro de Servicios Comunitarios (Community Services Center) in Yakima, WA, our mission is to serve one individual, one family, one business and one community at a time.
We are dedicated to providing assistance to individuals in the community in a variety of areas. We have helped hundreds of community members with startup business plans and small business formation, job training, bilingual CDL classes, English as a Second Language classes, computer literacy in English and Spanish, job training and access to employment opportunities and other community resources.
We have also assisted approximately 150 businesses ranging from general contractors, landscapers, home cleaning services, restaurants, taquerias and mobile vendors, just to name a few. We have earned the trust and confidence of clients and the community. Our center is established in a fair-sized office where clients feel welcome and comfortable to visit and discuss their needs.
We are a friendly place where community members of all ages can come to learn about computers, use the Internet, explore new careers, further their education, obtain financial literacy and/or develop technology skills. We are within walking distance for community members where median family income averages approximately $8,000 to $9,000 a year.
Our founder, prior to starting the center, was employed for 10 years at the Northwest Learning and Achievement Group, a non-profit organization bringing college outreach and after-school programs to central Washington school districts. That long-term experience provided an opportunity to work with Latino families and observe that many were hard-working, self-employed small business owners struggling with the challenges of communication with government agencies, filling out documents and understanding the laws, guidelines, taxing requirements and the required bookkeeping records for successful business enterprises. As an experienced business person, our founder was drawn to this area of community service and in order to provide these services, formed Centro de Servicios Comunitarios in May of 2011.
