Our activities also promote cultural understanding and recognize the positive contributions of immigrants and long tradition of immigration in our communities. Our bilingual staff provides assistance by facilitating communication and access to health, legal, and educational services. The goal of our program is to extend EOC’s mission of promoting economic self-sufficiency to immigrants in our community.
Our Services Include:

Since it began, the program has run part-time year round and has provided language instruction, outreach, referral and advocacy services, and served as a cultural and community hub for hundreds of Latino immigrants in the Saratoga Springs area. English classes now have approximately 427 students enrolled during 2007 and our list of services poised to expand.
