We bring the American dream to life for Latino immigrants. We do so by empowering families as they overcome the challenges they face on their path to self-sufficiency.

We have been around since 1972. We are the largest and longest-serving agency in metro Atlanta dedicated to serving the unique needs of Latino immigrants. Our dedicated staff of bilingual professionals is here to serve the Latino community.
