Hillsboro’s Enterprise Zone will soon welcome the area’s first workforce and economic empowerment center. After more than a year of planning between the City of Hillsboro and Centro Cultural de Washington County, the historic partnership will open Centro de Prosperidad (or “Center of Prosperity”) in Downtown Hillsboro.
Centro de Prosperidad will provide services to connect families with living-wage jobs and promote the next generation of entrepreneurs in the region. The center’s staff will focus on helping unemployed people gain language skills and other work skills to assist them in finding work, helping existing workers gain confidence and skills to move up the wage ladder, and helping residents start their own small businesses. A variety of sites in Downtown Hillsboro are being considered for the project.
