About Us

Who We Are

Chicanos Por La Causa is an all-encompassing organization for the underserved.  

CPLC was founded in 1969 by a group of community and student activists to confront oppression facing the Latino community in South Central Phoenix. Since then, we have expanded our mission to promote stronger and healthier communities throughout the southwestern United States, including Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico, serving more than 200,000 individuals annually. Republic Media's 2016 Who's Who in Business recognized us as the largest charity in Arizona. 

Our vibrant community presence spans a comprehensive range of bilingual and bi-cultural services in Economic Development, Education, Health & Human Services, and Housing. While our services are offered to all people, regardless of ethnic background, we have a special competence in meeting the needs of the Latino community and have become the most trusted provider of services to Latinos in Arizona.
