Program Overview

For 49 years, Catholic Charities' Spanish Catholic Center (SCC) in Gaithersburg has helped meet the employment, education, and emergency needs of Montgomery County's low-income, new-immigrant residents. Montgomery County is home to more than 32,350 Salvadorian citizens; 51% of the county's Central American-born population does not have a high school diploma, and 69% are limited-English proficient (American Community Survey, 2008). Recognizing that literacy education is central to securing better employment and supporting long-term self-sufficiency, Catholic Charities provides a Spanish literacy education program at our Gaithersburg site. The program is open to Spanish speakers regardless of their country of origin. Participants will receive a certificate of completion.
