16 years of
lighting the way

El Sol improves the quality of life for the community of Jupiter by providing services to day-laborers and their families.

About Us

At first, El Sol simply provided a controlled, safe, and just labor center that served as a solution to injustices that day laborers faced (wage theft, labor abuse, crime, discrimination, and unsafe hiring conditions) and offered an organized service for employers looking to hire day laborers. However, over the past 16 years El Sol has expanded to offer services in seven different program areas: Labor, Adult Education, Health, Community Life, Legal, Food and Nutrition, and Youth Development. El Sol is a shining example of a community coming together to devise an innovative solution to a challenging problem.
