El Centro Humanitario
Centro Humanitario Para Los Trabajadores (El Centro) is Denver’s only day laborer center promoting work, dignity and community. The mission is to promote the rights and well-being of day laborers and domestic workers in Colorado through education, job skills, leadership development, united action and advocacy.
Since 2002, over 2,000 workers have accessed El Centro’s programs, including know your rights training, direct access to jobs, workforce development and job skills training, as well as leadership development and community building.
El Centro’s dedication and continued efforts have played a crucial role in promoting awareness and advancing reforms that address everyday struggles and hardships, as well as structural barriers, surrounding this underrepresented and often invisible, community. El Centro’s history and role in the greater community are captured in El Centro Story and El Centro Domestic Worker Study, both of which were published by Dr. Tony Robinson, Professor of Political Science at the University of Colorado Denver.
