Cuba Cultural Center, Inc.
Cuba Cultural Center, Inc. offers a place of comfort and support for all. At the Center, we encourage families by providing for basic survival needs, offering assistance to those who have long term or permanent needs, and by advocating through policy and justice work.
Regardless of spiritual status, income or address, anyone may benefit from the programs offered at the Center. We encourage and promote participation in our programs as a means of serving the local community and gaining invaluable skills.
Cuba Cultural Center acknowledges that we conduct our work on land stolen from the Haudenosaunee confederacy (more specifically, the O-non-dowa-gah or Seneca nation).We honor the proud and rich history of the Seneca nation, also known as the “Keeper of the Western Door,” which currently has a total enrolled population of nearly 8,000 citizens. We honor and respect their people, past, present, and future, and affirm the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.
We hope that you’ll visit us soon!
