About SER

SER's Mission

Central States SER (SER) promotes economic self-sufficiency and upward mobility for low-income community residents through education and employment.

SER was established more than two decades ago to provide employment-related services to people residing in the greater Chicago area. SER is the Spanish verb “to be,” and also reflects the means by which our mission is accomplished — Service, Employment, and Redevelopment.
