The Multicultural Center was founded in July 1968 as the Hispanic Civic Center of Danbury by a group of Hispanics, mostly Puerto Ricans, who wanted to preserve their traditions and language and pass it on to the next generation. It began as a cultural center for the Latino community. The group met in St. Anthony’s Church, where they had classes to teach children their parent’s language and customs. The goals of the agency were:

"The encouragement of the culture, fraternity, and mutual assistance of its members as well as the sponsoring of social and sporting activties, with special attention and emphasis on the furtherance of the Hispanic Cultural of its members"

At that time, Danbury’s Hispanic population was about 3,000, composed primarily of Puerto Ricans. In the 1970s, the center’s name was changed to Hispanic Cultural Society of Danbury

As the size of the community increased, its needs changed. Many of the new immigrants did not speak English and needed to know how to function in a new society as well as what was available to them. The mission of the Center changed with the population, the center evolved into a social-service agency. The focus of the center was on teaching English and helping Spanish-speaking adults earn high school diplomas. In the 70s, among other programs, the Center began to offer summer programs for children. Its primary mission became to integrate Spanish speaking people into the broader community, to help people become self-sufficient and progress. In 1993, the center was renamed the Hispanic Center of Greater Danbury, reflecting the agency’s growth in its mission and that it was no longer only a cultural center, but a social service agency.
