PICC Member of the Month
Ceiba is a coalition of Latino community-based organizations that promote the economic development and financial inclusion of the Latino community through collaborations and advocacy aimed at ensuring their access to affordable housing. Ceiba uses a comprehensive approach to promote asset building in low income communities. It includes housing counseling, financial literacy education, matched savings programs, free tax preparation, access to the Earned Income Tax Credit, ITIN application assistance, access to micro-loans, and the opportunity to establish and improve credit. Ceiba has been a member of PICC since 2004. As a member, Ceiba collaborated with other organizations to expand access to city services for people who are LEP. Over the years, Ceiba’s collaboration has grown to include participating in PICC’s PA is Ready! efforts. Being a member of PICC has opened the door for other opportunities as well; most recently, Ceiba had the opportunity to attend the National Immigration Integration Conference in Phoenix Arizona.
