Milagro Center

Mission Statement

Milagro Center is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to ensure the social and academic success of underserved children and youth through Cultural Arts, Living Values, Academic Support, and Mentoring.

Vision Statement

To be a center of creative cultural collaboration, engaging education and inspiration that dissolves social barriers, forms lasting connections and sets the stage for future success.

History

Milagro Center was founded in 1997 by several local visionary leaders motivated by the desire for community service centered on providing arts experiences to the economically-challenged neighborhood children.  Milagro, which means “miracle” in Spanish, motivates children and teens to “reach for the stars” while being confronted by the many adverse influences they face in the community. Milagro Center’s uniquely integrated programs focus on empowering these at-risk youth and their families to succeed, both in school and in life, having a resounding positive influence on our Delray Beach community.

Milagro Center carries out its mission by providing afterschool, summer camp, and ARTreach programs, to disadvantaged and academically-at risk children and teens in grades K-12, right here in South Florida. Its STARS (grades K-5) and Teen Leadership (grades 6-12) programs center around four inter-related diverse and socially inclusive program components:  Cultural Arts Instruction (including art, musical instruments, dance, digital technology, theatre, voice) the United Nations-endorsed Living Values Education curriculum, Mentoring, and Academic Support. This unique and effective model allows Milagro’s children and teens to develop new skills, build self-esteem, and thrive socially and academically.  Milagro Center truly changes the course of these deserving children’s lives from repeating the recurring cycle of poverty to becoming self-sufficient and productive members of our community..

Additionally, The BLUEPRINT Gallery, a professional art gallery housed at Milagro Center, provides ARTreach programs to over 450 children, teens and adults each year. The BLUEPRINT Gallery hosts six exhibits a year showcasing the many talents of artists in south Florida. A variety of programming is offered and can be designed based on an organization’s needs.

CROS Ministries

CROS Ministries serves the hungry in Palm Beach and Martin Counties through community collaborations. In 1978 a group of United Methodist Churches located in Palm Beach County came together to form Christians Reaching Out to Society Inc. (CROS Ministries). These congregations realized that together they could make a bigger difference assisting the community’s hunger needs. Overtime, CROS Ministries became both ecumenical and interfaith, partnering with other denominations and faiths. Our primary goal is to alleviate hunger in our community through programs designed to provide food so that our clients can use their limited resources on other basic needs, such as medicine and housing.
