How you help It is ECC’s vision to see that residents in the Northwood area and all of West Palm Beach appreciate their Latino neighbors and the role they play in the community; and that the day laborers and their families in particular feel safe, welcome and able to access the resources they need to live healthy, happy and productive lives. These resources include nutrition and health care, affordable housing, legal services, workforce training, English as a second language education, and support services provided by the ECC for the day laborers (not all of whom are Latino) seeking to connect with employers wanting to hire day labor help. Esperanza Community Center currently provides – either directly or in partnership with other organizations – the following: • Pro-bono legal counseling and workshops, once a month • Wage theft prevention workshops and case management • Health and wellness referrals and periodic screenings, including Covid-19 testing and vaccination, pediatric and adult vaccines • Know Your Rights workshops • Adult literacy and ESL classes • Drug & alcohol prevention education/workshops • Vaccination and health education events.
About us In the Northwood area, an "open-air labor market" began to develop next to Broadway and 44th Street several years ago. Up to 60 day laborers, primarily Mayan immigrants from Guatemala and Southern Mexico, congregate daily in an unorganized outdoor labor market where employers pick them up for work. A group of concerned citizens got together to address the problem in early 2019, and Esperanza Community Center was formed. The primary goal of the Center was to transform the problem of an unsafe and contentious open-air day-labor market into a safe day labor center. In addition, we have since learned that there are currently no organizations providing services on behalf of the broader Latino community in the Northwood area and the needs are many. The Center has expanded its focus to address the broader needs of this community.
