Serving the Latino Community
A beautiful journey
We seek to offer the Latino families hope for a positive and healthy future and to build bridges between the Latino community and the greater community by facilitating cross-cultural relationships that bring new understanding and benefits to all.
We help families make informed choices about what to keep from their old culture and what to adopt from the new culture through education and life enrichment programs, as well as character and leadership development activities.
We currently serve over 150 children of first generation immigrant families in the Old Town neighborhood of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Because the path to high school graduation begins in infancy, LCS helps mothers discover how to prepare their babies for kindergarten. Reading well by third grade is a marker for future academic success, so LCS’s Family Literacy Initiative focuses parents and children on that goal.
And because the transitions to middle school and then high school are danger zones for immigrant students with low socioeconomic status, LCS helps students and parents navigate those waters.
