It is with great pleasure that Centro CHA Inc. announces receipt of a $40,000 grant from the S. Mark Taper Foundation. These funds will provide general operating support for the organization to enhance free positive family and community strengthening services through case-management, workforce development, college access, summer safety alternatives and safe passages, counseling, immigration legal services and referrals to other agencies. Our goal is to reduce violence and promote safe and healthy and sustainable places for children, youth and families to live, work and thrive.

Centro CHA is thankful to the S. Mark Taper Foundation investment to support our mission and work to provide services in the neediest communities of Long Beach.
