“Hola!! Quiero agradecerte de todo corazón tu ayuda para inscribir a mi hijo, Ezekiel, en el programa de salud, ha sido de gran bendición. El tuvo una contusión antes de salir de la escuela jugando football, lo estuve llevando una vez por semana a chequeos y pues el saldo subió. hace días llamé para hacer cita para su examen físico y hacer un pago pues sabía que tenía un saldo de casi $500 dlls. En fin, cuando pedí hacer el pago me dijeron que mi saldo era de solo $45 dlls, bendito Dios el programa absorbió la deuda que tenía, gracias por la labor que realizan en la Oficina de la comunidad latina, pero sobre todo por tu atención. Dios les bendiga en abundancia, gracias mil!!!! “

“Hello! I want to thank you with all my heart for your help signing up my son Ezekiel in the health program. It’s been a huge blessing. He got a contusion playing football just before leaving school. I was taking him to checkups once a week and the bill just kept going up. A few days ago, I called to make an appointment for his physical exam and to make a payment knowing that the balance owed was almost $500. When I asked about making the payment, they told me my balance was only $45. By God’s grace the program had absorbed the debt I owed. Thank you for the work you do at the Latino Community Association and, above all, for your caring support. May God bless you in abundance. Thank you so much!”

“Antes que nada les quiero agradecer infinitamente por su ayuda en buscarme la ayudante de maestra que les pedí, bueno les cuento que apenas pusieron en FB, me llamaron dos chicas y una de ella ya esta trabajando con nosotras desde ayer!”

~ Carmen Schierling (Villagrana), Business Client

"The Latino Community Associations is a critically needed organization in Central Oregon. Not only does it provide desperately needed and unique services to Latino families, it both advocates for those families and brings together Latinos and Anglos to share in their rich cultures and abilities."
