Centro Comunitario CEUS is run by Comitė En Unión para Salvadoreňos
(CEUS), a non-profit organization founded by immigrants on a philosophy of
self-reliance. Volunteers are a key part of CEUS, and the group is funded mainly with donations and program fees.
CEUS has four part-time employees: a staff attorney, two community
organizers and an executive director. More than a dozen community members also help run
the programs, which assist more than 1,000 people each year. The group is steered by a nine-member
Board of Directors elected annually by participants in the CEUS membership
works closely with a range of like-minded groups around the country to
strengthen community leadership and advocacy skills, and develop programs.
They include the Salvadoran Committee Of New Jersey, Helping Immigrants, American Friends Service
Committee (AFSC) and the Salvadoran-American National Network (SANN), a nationwide group of
Central American immigrants.
