Centro Communitario Juan Diego has been making
a difference in South Chicago for 20 years.
The center was founded by eight Latina women who
had the courage to oppose hardships.
As a grassroots community based organization we
operate many vital programs focused on health care
issues, community organizing, social services, and
family education. Through our efforts we hope to foster
confident leaders for today and tomorrow.

On October 28, 2017, Centro Comunitario Juan Diego,
sponsored a Halloween family party event. The event was
open to all the community. The donations you provided CCJD
with were distributed amongst 150 children and 75 parents.
Thanks to your generosity everyone was able to enjoy from
small items to big items. Children and parents went home
happy with many items to enjoy for the next summer.
All of the staff at Centro Comunitario Juan Diego would like to
thank WorldVision. Not only do they help us provide resources to
our commnunity, but they are a constant reminder that our
collaberative efforts help to bring our community together and
make everyone aware that even if people are going through hard
times, there is help available.
Thanks to the food donations, all of the 98 needy food pantry families
were able to take advantage of a new item added to their pick up list (Food
Basket). You put many smiles in single parents, children, and homeless
faces. The majority of the items were distributed to our 35 homeless
individuals. Their smiles were unforgettable.
Again, thank you!!!!!
