Founded in 1973, The Puerto Rican Cultural Center (PRCC) Juan Antonio Corretjer is a non-profit community-based institution that serves the socio-ecological needs of Chicago’s Puerto Rican /Latino community. It is built on the following principles: a philosophy of self-determination, a methodology of self-actualization and a critical thought, and a moral value that bridges self-reliance and communal responsibility, which is best expressed in the Center’s motto, “To live and help to live”
