Your talent and passion + our mission = outcomes

Come grow our reputation.

Employees come to Congreso because they hear the positive things our clients, employees, and supporters say about us. Congreso has served the neighborhoods of eastern North Philadelphia since 1977. We have built our reputation on trust and high-quality human service delivery. And now our expertise in client-centered, outcomes-informed service delivery is extending our reputation beyond local borders to regional and national renown.

Come serve the community.

Employees come to Congreso because of their passion to work directly with members of a vibrant and diverse community towards greater self-sufficiency. We have grassroots in Philadelphia’s Puerto Rican community and a commitment to strengthen all who live in the communities we serve. Our campus is located in the heart of the Eastern North Philadelphia neighborhoods we serve and includes a charter school that houses college courses at night.

Come celebrate culture.

Employees come to Congreso because of the diversity of our employees, clients, and community we serve. We seek to understand diverse cultures through humility, listening, and understanding.  And you can use or practice your Spanish language skills every day. (Some positions at Congreso may require bilingual skills in Spanish/English; many do not.)

Come be part of our “familia.”

Employees come to Congreso for a working culture that reflects our family-centered service approach and our commitment to balance work and family. Our “mi casa es su casa” welcome extends to employees and all who seek services from us. Our employees value the feeling of being “like family” and the close and supportive relationships they have with co-workers.

Come grow professionally.

Employees come to Congreso to gain experience, learn new skills, and grow professionally. Our Primary Client Management™ training program offers employees professional development in client-centered, data-informed, and culturally competent service delivery. We recognize supervisors as leaders and the link they make between retention and service quality.  All supervisors receive training and engage in regular professional development and organizational strategy conversations with Congreso’s President/CEO. Congreso has a reputation for leadership development, with many former employees now in leadership positions on local, regional and national levels.
