Opportunities and Challenges: A Community Perspective on Nonprofit Services for Latinos and Community Need

Jul 01, 2007
  • Description

Opportunities and Challenges: A Community Perspective on Nonprofit Services for Latinos and Community Need provides an important snapshot of the current nonprofit services, capacity gaps, and barriers to service from the perspectives of Latino community members and nonprofit leaders in four communities in the metropolitan Chicago area. It builds on reports by the Institute for Latino Studies and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs that document the features of this important demographic shift, the economic, social, and cultural roles Latinos play, and challenges facing Latinos in the Chicago metropolitan area. It also builds on a recent report by the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago and the Chicago Community Trust that describes the work of nonprofit health and human services organizations in light of broader demographic shifts, policy changes, and stagnant and decreased funding.
