Serving the Immigrant Community in Anne Arundel County since 1999

The Center

Starting in 1997, and incorporated in 2002, the Center of Help began serving the low-income Latino population living in the Allen Apartments in Annapolis. It now serves more than 2,500 clients per year at the Gardner Center on Forest Drive. The Center is the only nonprofit organization in the community assisting Hispanic/Latino and other immigrants to assimilate into American culture, language and customs.   The strength of the organization is that our services and educational programs are offered in a culturally-appropriate, stable and safe environment by a committed and passionate group of staff, Board of Directors, and volunteers. Our services and educational programs help us to fulfill our mission, which stipulates, “T​he Center of Help exists to assist Hispanic-Latinos and other immigrants socially, educationally, and economically in order to become contributive citizens in the Anne Arundel Community.” In addition, the Center of Help organizes social and celebratory events for the Annapolis community to share and enjoy the different traditions of the Hispanic/Latino communities.
