Latinos face unique challenges on the path to self-sufficiency that we help tackle head-on. It’s because of this the LAA empowers Latinos in Georgia by providing individuals and families with the resources to help them become self-sufficient and contributing members of their community.
Your gift to the LAA will help empower more than 850 Latinos every week to live self-sufficient lives and integrate fully into their community by providing them with life-giving resources and education. They will have the chance to inherit knowledge, skills and support they will need while on their road to success through access to programs and services, including employment orientations and services, immigration legal services, family well-being support groups and services, adult education classes and empowerment and youth programs.
That’s a future worth investing in.
