We bring the American dream to life by serving the needs of immigrants from Latin America in metro Atlanta with a full spectrum of services and programs that help families adapt to their new country and integrate into the community.




We help Latinos overcome challenges so they can be all they can be. We offer Latino women, men and children the tools and resources they need — including immigration legal services, English classes, emergency assistance and computer literacy courses in Spanish, among many others – to achieve their fullest potential, ultimately empowering them to become self-sufficient and thrive.

  • We believe that access to opportunities will improve the lives of Latino immigrants and us all, ultimately enhancing the well-being of the communities where we live, go to school and work.
  • We help build stronger, more diverse communities and a more prosperous future for everyone.
  • We believe that the success of Latino men, women and children forges a more promising future for all.
  • We stand by the belief that the more stable and robust our immigrant communities are, the better off we all are.



Founded in 1972, we are the longest serving and largest provider of social and immigration legal services in Atlanta’s Latino community. Last year, our services and programs impacted more than 40,000 individuals.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
