BELIEVE IN DIVERSITY
La Paz Chattanooga is the leading organization promoting inclusion of the Hispanic and Latino community in Southeast Tennessee.
Since opening our doors in 2004, we have worked to build and establish trust with Chattanooga's diverse Latino demographic through programs and services created to empower and engage our community, boasting more than 10,000 individuals each year.
A diverse community is a strong community. The Latino population is a valuable asset to the Chattanooga area. All immigrants deserve access to resources that will help them thrive in their environment.
La Paz has been serving the Latino community in Chattanooga and the surrounding region for more than eighteen years. We build community, develop leaders, and contribute to the strengthening and development of our city by investing in its Latino population.
