What We Do

Chattanooga's Latino Resource Center

What we do best is serving as Chattanooga's Latino Family Resource Center, helping to guide and connect our residents to the resources available across the region that will help them thrive as active participants in society. 

We offer direct-service through case-management, social services, and counseling. We offer various outreach programs and classes to help in the development and education of our clients and community members, including ESL (English as a Second Language), citizenship. health/wellness classes, art courses, and more). 

La Paz relies on partner organizations to work on collaborative projects that have the potential for community impact. 

La Paz also manages Compañía, Chattanooga's hub for the professional Latino community. 

If you or a group you manage would like to learn how to better relate to and work with the local Latino community, please call La Paz and arrange for a consultation meeting

Hire us to translate your information into linguistically appropriate Spanish to reach Chattanooga's Latino residents.

Volunteer Information

La Paz offers several opportunities for individuals to utilize their gifts, talents, and time to support our clients and the work we do on behalf of the Latino community.  The biggest role our volunteers play is providing a welcoming Chattanooga atmosphere where our immigrant neighbors receive the love and appreciation for their unique cultural background (by showing some southern hospitality, love, and respect). 

Do you speak Spanish? Then we have a lot you can do, as La Paz hosts the leading volunteer interpreter group in town.
Don't speak Spanish? That's okay, we have many other activities for which we need assistance.
