Adelante Juntos and El Centro Youth Center in San Manuel earlier this month closed its doors and will no longer be in operation. The contract with Luz social Services and the Mammoth-San Manuel School District was not renewed.

Diana Polanco, Project Coordinator, said it was being shut down due to lack of funding. The Youth Center will be moved to Superior.

Luz Social Services of Tucson, the parent organization for AJC, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April. This may be part of its reorganization plan.

Additionally, the Arizona Workforce Connection will no longer be operating out of the Adelante Juntos office at the Avenue B school building.

Adelante Juntos and the El Centro Youth Center have provided social services to the community and a safe place for kids to gather and enjoy themselves. At the present time there are no plans to reopen the center.
