At Ciudad Nueva we are committed to Empowering Youth, Supporting Families, Equipping Leaders and Strengthening Community alongside our neighbors in downtown El Paso, Texas! 

Ciudad Nueva is a holistic, asset-based, faith-rooted 501(c) 3 community development organization that seeks to advance the renewal, development and thriving of the Rio Grande Neighborhood in downtown El Paso through the empowerment and transformation of its residents.  We strive to partner with our neighbors to cultivate hope and an environment where immigrant youth and families are empowered for a successful future.

We started our journey in 2004 when we started walking alongside 10 3rd graders through our Launch Pad after-school mentorship program. 17 years later, Ciudad Nueva is building long-term relationships with hundreds of youth and their families through after-school programming, mentoring, summer camps, soccer teams, financial literacy programs and community dinners. 

Ciudad Nueva Youth Empowerment Program students have excelled in school, earned academic scholarships to college, and received life-skills and vocational training. Program alumni have grown in their faith and have been equipped and empowered to serve their community and their neighbors, returning to mentor youth and support their elders. 

Families have been resourced, supported and empowered through work skills training and job referrals, English classes, healing arts programs, Food Co-op, and immigration legal service consults and referrals. Neighborhood moms who are leaders and advocates in the community have been hired as Community Connectors to serve, resource and empower their neighbors. Community residents have come together to advocate for improvements in the neighborhood through the Community Advisory Board, and a mosaic of church denominations, community organizations, and local service providers have come together alongside each other with a profound care for the well-being of their neighbors. 

As we close in on two decades of work in the heart of El Paso, the mission Ciudad Nueva continues: empowering youth, supporting families, equipping leaders and strengthening community!
