Latino Community Association to Open Doors at New Location During Bend’s Welcoming Week

The Latino Community Association is pulling up roots at its long-time Bend location in the Mike Maier County Services Building on Harriman Street­ for a roomier office on the banks of the Deschutes River. LCA will welcome the public during an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18, at its new location, 2445 NE Division St, Suite 200, in Bend. LCA’s open house is part of the City of Bend’s 2018 Welcoming Week activities occurring from September 14-23.

In January 2017, the Latino Community Association joined the national Welcoming America initiative as a Welcoming Nonprofit and then began encouraging other nonprofits and Central Oregon’s cities to join. On June 21, 2017, the Bend City Council unanimously passed a resolution declaring itself a “welcoming city” for immigrants and refugees and joined Welcoming America.

Also part of Welcoming Week festivities is LCA’s Latino Fest from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15 at Sahalee Park in Madras featuring Mariachi Viva Mexico. For more information, call (541) 382-4366 or visit
