The mission of the Guadalupe Center is to break the cycle of poverty through education for the children of Immokalee. The Guadalupe Center began in 1982 as a soup kitchen to meet the immediate needs of impoverished families living in Immokalee, Florida. By 1984, the Guadalupe Center formed a Board of Trustees and registered as a 501 (c) (3).
The Guadalupe Center is committed to providing children of Immokalee access to high quality, innovative academic and special support programs strategically designed to start from six weeks of age and continue through college graduation. The organization's focus is on the most critical periods of a child's education: early education, reducing the achievement gap, and college preparation and success. Three core programs provide over 1,400 children in Immokalee with the hope of a prosperous and productive life.
