About Us

All people should have the right to work, build a

community and determine their own future with

a sense of dignity. The displacement of thousands

of Central Americans into North America as a result

of war and civil strife in their homelands created the

need for an agency to safeguard the basic rights of

those seeking safe haven in our midst.

The Central American Refugee Center – CARECEN

promotes social justice and legal rights for Central

Americans and all immigrants, particularly those of

low and moderate income, through legal representation,

advocacy, outreach, education and community organizing.

Since 1983, CARECEN has continued to fight against

exploitation and discriminatory treatment of Central

American refugees and all immigrants under the laws

of the United States.
