La Familia Resource Center began out of a true passion and love to help multi-cultural families adjust to life in Southwest Louisiana.
Being Hispanic myself and living this experience first-hand through my parent's journey to the United States, I truly understand and can relate. We continue every day to walk by faith to help families adapt and assimilate into the community.
I praise God for the mighty work He has entrusted us at La Familia Resource Center to do. We are building stronger communities by crossing cultural bridges.
