The mission of the Latin American Association (LAA) is to empower Latinos to adapt, integrate and thrive. Our vision is ‘Opportunity for All.’
Founded in 1972, the LAA has grown over the past four decades to become the region’s leading agency representing Georgia’s Latino issues. The LAA offers a targeted menu of direct services that helps Latino individuals assimilate and become contributing members of Georgia’s community.
The LAA achieves its mission through five (5) focus areas: Culture & Engagement, Economic Empowerment, Education, Family Well-Being and Immigration. Each focus area includes a targeted menu of direct services, large-scale events and advocacy to realize significant community impact and affect systems level change.

Right in the Community wants to be your Developmental Disability Resource.
We keep up with trends, changes, and new programs, and stand ready to help families find their way along the path to services.
We can meet with you and discuss your needs and help find the appropriate programs and services. We have lists of doctors, dentists, psychologists and psychiatrists, residential programs, day programs, camps, and other resources to share with families. Resource information is maintained and updated so that we can provide the most current names and numbers.
Our staff is always willing to help families complete paperwork such as SSI applications, transit program applications, and waiver applications. We are also here to help them understand the maze of paperwork required for many of these programs.
Because we have been helping families for over 60 years, we have a helping history. We know most of the providers and the agencies and are able to network in the disability community and find the appropriate services and programs and help families obtain services with a minimum of delay.
We are your resource for services in the community.
