New Latino has done a lot of things for such a small organization throughout Southwest Michigan and beyond. They are continously looking to see how they can give back to the community as well as educate the community on the hispanic culture through activities such as: Marshall Hispanic Heritage Festival and Community Outreach (Gospel Mission, back packs for schools, warm coats/gloves/hats drive, El Centro). It has been my pleasure to assist this group in the past and in the future.

My daughter and I volunteered to assist with NLV at the Marshal, MI Hispanic festival and we were very impressed with their success in attracting non Latino people from within the local community. They also provide an excellent platform for Latinos to celebrate their culture, build self esteem, and celebrate their diversity. This is a great organization that truly cares about improving the community for all of us. Keep up the great work NLV!

Latino Visions has really done a great job at keeping our community connected. They have been part of many charity events througout the state and have sponsoried events such as "Cinco de Mayo", "Hispanic Festival", etc. I believe that events like this create more awareness in the community and help people stay connected with their heritage. I love and admire Latino Vision!!!!

I have been a volunteer for numerous events that New Latino Visions has participated in. We have a great group of people leading and directing this group towards its mission statement. Even though, they have gone from many board members to a few, they are small but MIGHTY. You can tell the passion is there, there is much enthusiasm and the joy and hearts they have touched in their volunteer efforts has been outstanding.

They continue to work on projects small and large throughout the year and many connections have been made due to the partnering with other organizations. I feel this is important when a group is willing to share the limelight with others.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the eyes and hearing the comments from the people/children ho we have helped or assisted when making deliveries or helping @ the events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure that we continue to make New Latino Visions presence known and remembered in the community. Continue to make connections with other groups.

I was fortunate to be involved with New Latino Visions' First Annual "Day of the Homeless" at the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission. We collected food and financial donations to help this organization feed the homeless. It was our pleasure to also be the servers for the evening meal the day we delivered our donations.

New Latino Visions is a great organization, working to better the community in which ii is involved. I am a member of the Insurance Professionals of Southwest Michigan and we joined forces with New Latino Visions and HERO for this event. By the three organizations joining forces, we were able to make a bigger impact than any organization could do on its own.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the amount of food and financial donations collected for the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not. The organization is doing a great job.
