Latino Community Association partners with nonprofit to address housing disparity
Increasing homeownership in the Latino community is the primary goal of a partnership between the Latino Community Association and First Story, a nonprofit that works to make homeownership more accessible.
First Story is one of the sponsors at the upcoming Latino Fest at Sahalee Park in Madras on Sept. 10. The event is the premier celebration of Latin American heritage in Central Oregon and is put on by the Latino Community Association, an organization that serves as the connecting point for the Latino immigrant community in the region.
The hope is that the annual event will increase engagement between the two organizations, taking the partnership a step further toward improving the lives of Latino families in Central Oregon.
