Currently, there are approximately 3,000 Hispanic families participating in at least one program at the Annam Community Center. After nearly 10 years of service, due to significant demand, Annam Center opened its doors to immigrants of Hispanic origins in 2014. Since then, the number of individuals of Hispanic backgrounds served at the Center continue to reach new heights.
There are 12 ethnic groups from South American countries belonging to the Hispanic Community joining at the Center. There are many services and programs to serve Hispanic people including food distribution, legal services (before the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center supported the Mexican Consulate on Wheel to open an on-site office twice a year, 2 weeks long to provide personal documents including passport, birth certificate, marriage certificate ...), help in emergency cases... In particular, the Center has initiated events and special programs for children such as Holiday Gifts To Share and Summer Camp to help them gain more confidence in exploring academic interests.
The Hispanic Community also makes significant financial contributions to the Center’s operational costs, as well as providing a significant pool of volunteers for its activities. The Center believes that its efforts will help low-income families move towards a brighter and more secure future.
