The Council of Spanish Speaking Organizations was founded on October 1, 1962, by a group of Latino leaders concerned with the many problems facing Philadelphia's Latino community. It is incorporated as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation. Since its inception, Concilio has been guided by a mission to ensure that equitable social, educational, health, and cultural services are available and affordable for everyone. For over 40 years, the organization has provided opportunities to the most disadvantaged in North Philadelphia, particularly Latinos, to obtain employment, health services, family counseling, adult and technical education, and cultural opportunities among others.
