Since 1982, Catholic Charities' El Programa Hispano has been providing a comprehensive array of social and mental health services to low-income Latinos who speak little or no English and live in the Portland-area. El Programa Hispano's mission is threefold: to increase self-sufficiency within the Latino community, to empower individuals to achieve a better quality of life and to promote mutual understanding and respect among cultures. PSU students use Spanish skills to assist recent immigrants with a variety of social services.
