Mission Statement

LASO's mission is to improve the quality of life of Hispanics living in the Low Country by empowering them with self-sufficiency and integration into our community.

Description

LASO provides orientations, referrals, and direct services by facilitating access to existing services and programs (i.e.: workshops and outreach, interagency liasions, making appointments and assuring interpreters, accompaniment), and provides services that may not otherwise be available (i.e. immigration clinics, consular visits, client advocacy). LASO also works with other entities to identify and develop new responses to emerging issues within the Hispanic Community, including leadership development. We seek to serve as a policy and program advocate for this underserved population, as well as partnering within the system to increase access to services.
While LASO targets its services to poor, Spanish-speaking residents with limited English proficiency, anyone is eligible to access the resources, programs and events we sponsor. Indeed, by attending Hispanic activities and celebrations the community gains a greater appreciation of the rich culture Hispanics bring to the Low Country.

Would you recommend latin american services organization?

by Charles S. from Tampa, FL (July 30, 2009)
I have been associated with LASO in Savannah for several years, most of my associates and friends are Hispanic and have come to me for assistance on many occasions. I have attended LASO outings and support shows in various locations in and around Savannah. They were helpful and eager to support families in distress of all Hispanic origins.To my best knowledge Sandra Swavley introduced me to the program several years back, as she was involved in a support group also. Acquiring identification legal through the consulate was a step beneficial for unregistered aliens. This was a definite step needed for immigrants having children born in the USA with no legal papers. I have a question now, How do you reapply for the MATRICULA ID when you loose it or have been robbed at gun point and all your identification has been stolen. Who do you call? Where do you find application to recover stolen papers? what department in the consulate helps? What consulate provides information for recovery?
