TODEC Legal Center

TODEC Legal Center
TODEC (Training Occupational Development Educating Communities) Legal Center is a grassroots community based non-profit organization that has been serving migrant communities in Riverside, San Bernardino, and Imperial Counties since 1984. 


TODEC’s mission is to empower disenfranchised immigrant communities to become economically, socially, educationally, and civically self-sufficient while enhancing individual self-esteem and community health. The overall purpose of TODEC is to ensure equitable access to information, immigration legal services, community education, advocacy, and civic engagement for limited and non-English speaking people including immigrants and migrant workers throughout Riverside, San Bernardino, Inyo, and Imperial counties.


 TODEC’s goal is to provide the tools needed so that immigrants can actively participate and integrate in the American communities in which they reside. This is accomplished by providing them with the resources to build community participation, civic engagement, naturalize, learn English, and understand the political and economic landscape they are entering.
