El Centro De La Raza provides social services on Seattleā€™s Beacon Hill. It started with the occupation of the vacant Beacon Hill School over forty years ago. This fall, El Centro completed the Plaza Roberto Maestas expansion, which added 112 low income housing units. KBCS Producer Jim Cantu spoke with El Centro Executive Director Estela Ortega about “Building the Beloved Community” on Beacon Hill.
