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

About Us

El Sol, Jupiter’s Neighborhood Resource Center, was founded in 2006 by a grassroots
public/private coalition to improve the quality of life for residents of Jupiter and
surrounding communities by providing services primarily to day laborers, their children,
and families.

Today, El Sol is recognized as a national model. It has not only created an organized
service for employers looking to hire day laborers, over the past 17 years El Sol has
expanded to offer services in six different program areas: Labor, Adult Education,
Community Care, Community Life, 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.
