Latin American Community Center, Wilmington, DE
The Latin American Community Center (LACC) was founded in 1969 by Hispanic immigrants and community leaders who sought to establish a resource center for immigrants- a place to learn a new language and the ways of a new culture. Forty-five years later, the LACC is a private, nonprofit organization serving more than 13,000 individuals annually. Its mission is to advocate for and assist the Latino and wider community by offering services in a continuum of care that promotes empowerment and an enhanced quality of life while celebrating our diverse cultures.
Continuum of care programs and services are offered in two strategic focus streams: Lifelong Learning and Life Empowerment. Lifelong Learning concentrates on the educational needs of our client families, from quality pre-school programs to adult education. Life Empowerment focuses on the life needs families and individuals may be facing, including but not limited to case management, mental health, employment, health prevention and advocacy.
We have a staff of over one hundred employees and provide services at five different locations across New Castle County, Delaware. Our Vision is to be recognized as a leading Agency, championing the needs of our community, advancing its economic and educational well-being, helping its members achieve their highest potential as contributors to society.
