The mission of the Latino Community Center is to empower, advocate with, and celebrate Latinos in Allegheny County.
The Latino Community Center is a small, but growing, nonprofit organization that was established as a 501(c)3 in April of 2017. The LCC was established in response to the needs of the growing population of Latinos in Allegheny County, and the needs and desires expressed within this community for supports within and around education, community resources, newcomer support, and more. Programming at the LCC includes bilingual after school programs, high school college and career readiness programs, a Welcome Hub for newcomers, community engagement events, connection to local resources, a "free store" located within the LCC, and more. The Latino Community Center, through all that it does, strives to ensure that all Latinos in Allegheny County are valued and have equal and equitable access.
