Chattanooga is the home to more than 30,000 Latinos (17% of Hamilton County Schools is Hispanic/Latino) and La Paz Chattanooga serves 20% of this growing population. As more Latinos are reached, our network is strengthened - creating connections, removing barriers and providing community access.
The fact is, our ability to serve this community is limited in our current space. Our expansion will enable us to continue current programs on a larger scale as well as create new, timely and relevant programs.
Through a larger community and program center, our service to the Latino and greater Chattanooga community will be multiplied.
