Centro Communitario Juan Diego has been making
a difference in South Chicago for 20 years.
The center was founded by eight Latina women who
had the courage to oppose hardships.
As a grassroots community based organization we
operate many vital programs focused on health care
issues, community organizing, social services, and
family education. Through our efforts we hope to foster
confident leaders for today and tomorrow.
