Message from the CEO:

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.

Now that the financial mortgage markets are opening up, we are seeing an uptick in the number of students enrolling in our home buyer education program which most lenders are requiring before making a loan. This is also a positive sign that things are getting better as more Houstonians are looking to invest in our communities.

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 three (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
