Ayuda Community Center

Organization Description: 

Ayuda (which means "help" in Spanish) Community Center was formed in 1991 by Spirit and Truth Fellowship Church in the Latino community of North Philadelphia. In 1992 Ayuda was incorporated as a separate entity in order to be a community-based and community-owned effort.

In January of 1997 Ayuda along with Spirit and Truth Fellowship, moved only fifteen blocks into the neighborhood of Hunting Park.

Ayuda's goal is to develop and implement services which will enable people and families living in the surrounding community to reach their full potential and to assist them in enhancing their communities.
