Chicanos Por La Causa is an all-encompassing organization for the underserved.
CPLC was founded in 1967 to confront oppression facing Latinos in Phoenix, Arizona as part of the movement led by Cesar Chavez, who undertook a fast at our original headquarters. Since then, we have become one of the largest Hispanic nonprofits in the country, promoting stronger and healthier communities throughout the southwestern United States. We provide direct services impacting more than 250,000 individuals annually in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.
Our vibrant community presence spans a comprehensive range of bilingual and bi-cultural services in Economic Development, Education, Health & Human Services, and Housing. As one of the largest community development corporations in Arizona, we are focused on individuals and families with low to moderate income levels and complement our services with cultural and linguistic competencies.
