Welcome to Latino Service Providers
The Latino Service Providers (LSP) works with community partners to engage, collaborate, and exchange valuable information; to increase awareness of available resources, access to programs and services; to influence public policy, delivery of services, enhance inter-agency communication; and to promote professional development within the Latino population.
Latino Service Providers was founded by Latino leaders in 1989, and formalized as a member organization in 1991, in response to helping Latinos in Sonoma County obtain knowledge and access to resources to enrich lives and help improve our communities. Our nonprofit organization is currently comprised of over 1,400 members from a broad spectrum of the community, including a diverse group of individuals, community-based organizations and local businesses. We come together to educate and network in support of the Latino community, to improve access to healthcare, mental health services, education, legal support and other social services available in our area. Latino Service Providers of Sonoma County is funded in part by the Sonoma County Mental Health Services Act.
Monthly LSP Meetings help members collaborate and create stronger community networks in Sonoma County. Every month a new host agency provides meeting space, a light refreshment and information about their organization, programs and services. Attendees introduce themselves and make announcements about their organizations or groups, and are encouraged to bring educational materials to share. Meetings are usually held on the last Thursday of the month from 11:30am to 1:00pm. You do not have to be Latino or speak Spanish to attend. All community members are welcome!
Weekly electronic newsletters are sent in a timely manner to our members. E-newsletters consist of vital information that is relevant to the Latino community. Announcements include, but are not limited to: Employment opportunities, community events, free or low cost educational classes, low cost health and mental health wellness programs.
