LAUP is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping Latinos transition into full participation in the community life of Holland, Michigan and the surrounding Lakeshore area. Among the many challenges encountered by Latinos in our community are language, employment, education, cultural differences, and legalization. In addition, the shortage of Latino civic leaders indicates a need for education about taking an active role in government.
LAUP addresses these needs through a variety of programs, advocacy, and partnerships with the many organizations in our community that also desire to develop the rich multicultural life of the Holland region. Together our vision is to create a prosperous community for all that attracts those who value a harmonious and multicultural community.
