The Latino Leadership Council is the region's ONLY LATINO-FOCUSED nonprofit formed in 2007 to advocate for the needs of Latino populations and challenge systems to develop equitable services and supports. Our team of Promotores conduct home visits to connect our families to health, education and youth development services. 

The naming of our organization, the Latino Leadership Council, was intentional. We dreamed of an organization that would be a hub of leadership development for our Latino/a populations. Instead, we found our families in crisis, with no access to healthcare, no link to their children’s schools or no support for their youth who were disproportionately in child welfare or probation systems. In response, we became a service organization, serving upwards of 700 Latinos/as every year. Our Promotores, or cultural brokers, conduct home visits during the day, evening and weekend to increase access to services and supports that they would otherwise not receive due to their long work schedules. And we work alongside other nonprofits, agencies and providers such as doctors, to ensure they understand Latino/a cultural norms and can serve them in a culturally appropriate manner. Our clients are diverse: they are citizens, immigrants, low-income, middle-class, homeless, home-owners, and each one we uplift is another member of our community able to advocate for themselves and teach their neighbors critical navigation and leadership skills that benefit their communities at large.


To advance the wellness and leadership capacity of Latino populations.

2. Supplies for our various groups and classes to provide support, health education, and mental well-being to our clients

Supplies are essential to facilitate our various groups and classes aimed at establishing community belonging and promoting the health and wellness of our clients. Funding will directly impact those seeking support and guidance!

3. Funding to write grants for sustainability

None of our work is possible without the generous contributions of donors. The longevity and effectiveness of our programs are directly impacted by securing additional grants and resources. Funding will ensure the LLC continues to be a beacon of hope for Latino/a families in the greater Placer and Sacramento region!
