Welcome to our new website!
We are thrilled to unveil our revamped online platform, designed with the utmost care and dedication to serving the needs of Filipino Americans and constituencies in our community. As a nonprofit organization committed to empowering and supporting our kababayans (compatriots), immigrants, and citizens, first and succeeding generations, we have created this space to address the unique challenges and celebrate the rich diversity of our community.
One of the significant highlights of our website is our brand-new logo, which embodies our mission and values. Inspired by the rich cultural heritage of the Philippines, our logo incorporates the ancient Baybayin script, an indigenous writing system that holds deep historical significance. By embracing this script, we honor the roots of our immigrant community and celebrate the resilience and strength that immigrants bring with them.
Our website serves as a central hub for providing resources, services, and advocacy for our community. We understand the importance of creating a safe space, a “home away from home,” where individuals can find support, guidance, and a sense of belonging. Whether you are seeking educational opportunities or community engagement initiatives, our website offers a wealth of information to help navigate your journey.
Here, you will find a wide range of resources, including immigration policies and updates, educational guides, mutual aid, health and wellness initiatives, work/office collaborations, language
assistance, cultural enrichment activities, and community events tailored to your needs. We aim to foster a community-driven approach, empowering kababayans to thrive, and ensuring their voices are heard.
We encourage you to explore the various sections of our website, join our vibrant online community, and take advantage of the numerous opportunities available. Our team is continuously working to expand and improve our offerings, so check back regularly for updates, news, and upcoming events.
At Rizal Center, we believe that diversity is our strength and that by supporting each other, we can create a more inclusive society. Together, let us build bridges, break barriers, and make a difference in the lives of our kababayans and our neighbors. We are excited to have you join us on this journey.
Once again, welcome to our new website, your virtual “home away from home.” Thank you for being a part of our community, and we look forward to connecting with you soon!
