Centro Cultural Latinos Unidos is known as the place of choice for all Hispanic residents of Pottstown and the tri-county region. This is where Latinos receive the services and the support necessary for them to lead high quality and productive lives. CCLU is an active Spanish cultural diversity center where everyone enjoys the exchange of ideas. This is a place where youth and adults learn from each other. Everyone is welcome and everyone who experiences CCLU marvels at the sense of belonging. Here Latinos work together to promote pride in their Hispanic heritage and contribute positively to the community in Pottstown and the tri-county region.
CCLU was established as a non-profit in 1997. Our organization addresses the needs of first and second-generation immigrants from Mexico, Central America, and South America who make their homes in Pottstown. We improve their lives through community interaction. We work to provide Latino children and adults with the training, self-discipline and skills they need to overcome the difficulties they face in their schools and work places, and to take productive leadership roles in the community. All the services provided to them are bi-lingual. CCLU's community and collaborative efforts embrace and continue these goals and our mission.
