Congreso Awarded Top Workplace 2022 

Congreso de Latinos Unidos is proud to announce that we’ve been selected as a 2022 Top Workplace by the Philadelphia Inquirer! We have now earned this recognition 4 years in a row! 

This annual list is based solely on employee feedback through a third-party research partner, Energage, LLC. Thank you to all of our employees who helped make this happen! 

To celebrate our achievements, Congreso held a Day of Togetherness & Wellness on May 20th, 2022. Employees gathered outdoors to celebrate Congreso’s achievements with shout outs, a salsa lesson with Flaco’s Dance Factory, lunch, “recess”, and even Mister Softee!

Housing Program Recognized at PACDC 30th Anniversary Gala and Awards Ceremony 


On Wednesday, May 18th, Congreso’s Housing program was invited to PACDC’s (Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations) 30th Anniversary Gala and Awards Ceremony.

The Housing Team was recognized as a Community Development Champion, an award that states:“We cannot overemphasize just how important housing counseling is to the ecosystem of affordable, equitable housing in the city. These housing counselors make a key difference in the lives of Philadelphians who have few other supports. They make the difference in keeping folks housed, safe, and thriving”.  

Congratulations to our Housing program and thank you, PACDC, for recognizing the amazing work they do to keep our community safely and stably housed!
