El Concilio has a rich history of helping the most vulnerable of persons with the most sensitive of issues. Our office works hard to listen to those in need of assistance with navigating services involving domestic violence, sexual abuse, harassment, discrimination, and general risks to safety. Our network of partners has a wealth of resources that we can help introduce and access for your safety needs.

Does you or your family need food but don’t speak English? El Concilio, in proud partnership with Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes, can set up referrals for you and your family with one of their 26 Kalamazoo county-wide pantries as part of their Grocery Pantry Program. For more information on Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes, visit www.kzoolf.org.

For referrals:

We need the following information: name, date of birth, and address of all members of the household for which food is being provided for.  Referrals must be made in person, please bring a form of identification if possible. For questions, please call 269-385-6279.

El Concilio and the NAACP Metropolitan Kalamazoo Branch is committed to helping all people fight unfair labour practices at work.

Discrimination in any form, whether based on race, gender, age, religion, family status, height, weight, physical or mental disability, national origin, sexual orientation or identity is unacceptable.

Our team of staff, volunteers and professionals are trained to help individuals manoeuvre the complexities of discrimination at work. Individuals who believe they have been the victim of discrimination whether through housing or employment are encouraged to contact us at 269-385-6279 to begin the process.
