Since opening our doors in 1969, the Latino based agencies that make up our network have matured into a dynamic and unified community based organization offering a unique constellation of services in the area of health, housing and economic development.
We honor the Latino pioneers that struggled to create these entities by continuing to expand their vision.
Our mission to partner with our communities, lead change, and promote healthy and prosperous individuals and families guides and inspires us to stay grounded while pursuing our goals.
