Centro Campesino

A nonprofit organization

Centro Campesino was formed in 1972 as the Centro Campesino Farmworker Center in response to the deplorable living conditions of farmworkers and other low-income families in South Florida. Today, Centro Campesino serves a demographic similar to Miami Dade County with housing development, homeownership solutions, property management, education/workforce development, and community revitalization in South Florida.

Homeownership Solutions: HUD-certified Housing Center where certified housing counselors help families overcome barriers that prevent them from becoming mortgage ready and eligible for down payment assistance programs. In the last five years, helped nearly 400 families close on a home loan.

My Home Construction!: In the last five years, weatherized nearly 1,000 homes in 13 Florida Counties. Since our inception, built and sold over 500 homes in the affordable market for working families.
