The Latino Community Association has continued to build on its successes to expand its services to the local Latino population. It has become significant among all of the non-profit service providers in the community. LCA has weathered the inevitable hard times by sticking to its central mission and by attracting committed, talented volunteers and supporters to its programs.
The LCA is a wonderful organization that has helped many Hispanics families in Central Oregon. Among those families is my family that has benefit from many of the programs that LCA offers. Without the help and support that LCA offers to Latino families like mine, they wouldn't be able to afford services such as dental, chiropractic, or counselor services. Thank you LCA for all the services you offer to the Latino population. Also, I want to thank you all the donors and volunteers who make possible that organizations like LCA stay open and free of charge to low income families. Together, you are making the difference.

Gracias Miriam!! Thank you for your kind words and encouragement! Juntos avanzamos!
The LCA labor of love towards the Latino population in Central Oregon is extraordinary. Without this organization this vibrant minority could not have the help, support, and visibility it has. I respect greatly their staff, volunteers and board members. The clients they serve are extremely fortunate to have them all. Thanks for the donors as well. This is truly a gem of an organization that it needs all the support it can get to continue their work and their mission.
This was a very good experience they wore very helpful and meet my expectations
I have been volunteering with LCA for about two years now. I find it rewarding working on programs that benefit so many families, educates and empowers individuals of Latino Origin.
I often meet people with stories about how LCA has changed their lives. The organizers are dedicated and enthusiastic. They are continually looking for new ways to be current with the local needs.
I am a new supporter of Amigos. I joined the family because of the wonderful, intelligent, enthusiastic, dedicated and gratefull young people I have met in this community. I plan to volunteer when my experience matches a need. The organizers are clearly loved and respected by the people who have received support over the years before I became aware of the current efforts. Their continuing search for new ideas, programs and people in need is truly inspirational.
I began volunteering with LCA about two years ago. I am so impressed with the dedication of the Board and volunteers, and the graciousness of the latino community we serve. Both the Latino community I have been able to assist in the English tutoring program, and the other volunteers themselves have enriched my life. I've seen the Board grow and become more focused just in the short time I have been involved and look forward to being part of a growing, forward-thinking organization.
I have been involved with Latino Community Association since 2007 when I was volunteering during English classes. My role has evolved as I have been an English tutor, worked at the front desk, and assisted several times when LCA sponsored a lawyer for free consultations. I'm now the liaison between LCA and Inner City Outings as we are trying to get Latino students out in the woods.
This organization is deeply rooted in the community and has been doing an incredible job of providing English lessons, job searches, legal support, family support, immigration counseling, and a host of other programs that are integral to the residents of Central Oregon.
The leadership has been consistent, brilliant, and hardworking over the years and I continually volunteer and financially support this organization.
Worked on the Culture of Festivals. This was a very rewarding experience. Watching the newly sworn in U.S. citizens take their oath and celebrating with them via the festival was a joy. The many booths and people that visited this event was such a fulfillment of the efforts we put into this event. It was a honoring time for the new citizens and an opportunity for the community to share in this process.
I joined the Board of the Latino Community Association because I was so impressed by the work being done by the organization and wanted to do my part to help. I continue to admire and appreciate the efforts of the agency, the volunteers, the collaborators, and the people who come to receive services but end up contributing on a variety of levels.
