By the spring of 2009, Forum participants were primarily from local churches and organizations with outreach to local immigrants; this included groups that offer ESL instruction and other assistance to low-income immigrants. For these groups, the Forum provided a way to learn about issues and to avoid overlapping services. Participants grew to include many area residents, including both business leaders and members of the day laborer community.
In 2010, the Forum accepted a challenge from local business and political leaders to provide management for an organized worker center. The Centreville Labor Resource Center is the result of this challenge.
