For many Latinos living in Memphis, Latino Memphis is the first step in their pursuit of a better life for themselves and their families. For others, we are the only place they can turn to for assistance with health, education, and other basic services.
More and more Latinos are making Memphis their home every year. Over 80,000 Latino Memphians currently live, worship, work, study, and have fun here. As the primary provider of services to this community, we have dedicated ourselves to the idea that every Latino Memphian should have the opportunity and resources to become an engaged and active participant in making our city great. This means providing educational and career advancement opportunities, connecting clients to needed services, ensuring families are safe, and encouraging engagement between and among people of all backgrounds and ethnicities.
Latino Memphis offers services through key four programs:
- El Centro which offers access to information & referral services
- Abriendo Puertas which offers a path to Latino Student Sucess (Currently on hold)
- Derechos which is the Immigrant Rights Defense Center offering legal immigration services
- Tu Voz which offers a voice through policy and community engagement
