Education Based Latino Outreach EBLO (501c3 Non-Profit) was founded in 1980 by a group of like minded Latino residents from East Baltimore under the direction of José O. Ruiz, a community activist and at that time, new to Baltimore. José, a Nuyorican (Puerto Rican from NYC) was dismayed by the tremendous lack of services available to Latinos in Baltimore. José was most especially concerned that the educational needs of the Spanish speaking children were not properly addressed by the Baltimore City Public School System.
Our mission to empower Latinos in our communities to achieve their fullest potential through educational and cultural intitiatives remains strong today. The EBLO Board of Directors is dedicated to maintaining programs that support this underlying principle. After 35 years of educational advocacy, cultural presentations and educational program development, EBLO is now a Baltimore institution with a clear path to continued growth.
