WHAT WE DO
Community members and their families come to Latinx Flint with a broad array of needs that require a multi-faceted response.
The programs at the Latinx Technology & Community Center are transformational: 80% of our center visitors report that our services are excellent. In a ZIP code where 32.9% of residents home are vacant and abandoned due to both an economic and water crisis we understand the importance of our work. In 2018, we awarded more than 82 language certificates for local community members becoming one step closer to becoming bi-lingual advocates.
Latinx Flint gives the families of Flint and Genesee County the tools and opportunities they need to lead happy, healthy, and productive lives. LTCC’s educational programs in language instruction, cultural education, and leadership cultivation support the development of healthy community.
