The Latino Learning Center, Inc.
Founded in October 1979
The Latino Learning Center, Inc. was founded in October 1979 when it acquired as a gift a dilapidated 21,300 square foot building. Private donations funded the initial building remodeling and educational programs were initiated in 1983. Additional building renovations were completed in 1999 with a grant from the City of Houston. Annually an average of 450 adults receives training in the various vocational and educational programs. In 1985 the Latino Learning Center became the first Hispanic community agency to developed HUD assisted housing for the low-income elderly.
This year promises new opportunities for the Latino Learning Center to serve our community. Optimism is the New Year’s norm and everything
is now possible. Our Senior Activities and Health Center is now open
and serving low-income seniors and disabled adults. New partnerships have resulted in additional classes in residential electricity for unemployed low-income persons qualifying for training through the
Texas Workforce Commission.
This year the Latino Learning Center is planning a new and different approach to housing the elderly. We are in the process of planning and developing a multi-generation housing community where the elderly family will live on the bottom floor and the supporting family will live on the top floor. We believe this prototype housing model will add to the stability of our modern family unit where the elderly are living longer and require care and support from their children.
We are also excited about our annual gala which over the past 3 years has resulted in great success. From early indications, this year promises to be the best gala we have staged to date and we are looking forward to participation from all segments of our community.Rodolfo Gonzalez , CEO.
