El Programa Hispano Católico (EPHC) is a culturally specific, non-profit organization with a mission to advance racial equity and social justice through the power of our Latine culture, community, and self-determination. EPHC is an inclusive community that welcomes participants and staff of all beliefs.

El Programa Hispano Católico (EPHC) is seeking an Events & Community Relations Coordinator. This full-time position will join a collaborative and values-driven team passionate about equity, fundraising, and mission engagement. The position will support a rapidly growing organization with a current operating budget of over $10 million dollars. We innovate, take risks, learn, and refine as core practices. Your noteworthy organizational, event planning, presentation skills will help transform EPHC into a space where donors actively engage to help the Latine community thrive.

El Programa Hispano's humble roots began in 1982 when a small group of outreach workers from Catholic Family Services, now Catholic Charities of Oregon, (CCO) conducted outreach to Latino migrant farmworkers in East County. In 2015 with the support of CCO, EPHC became an independent 501c3 organization. Today, EPHC serves more than 20,000 individuals annually in the areas of Economic Sustainability, Education, Community Wellness and Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault prevention, intervention, and advocacy. Our vision is a thriving Latine Community living to our fullest potential.

Although EPHC is affiliated with the Catholic Charities Network, a candidate or participant does not need to be a Catholic to work with us or to receive services. Across our programs and services staff of all faiths-or-none- work within our framework of respect for our mission and the dignity of the human person and the common good.
