Plaza Adelante: A Latino Economic Engine Model

Here’s a thought:  invest in under-served Latino communities in order to benefit the larger economy. Sounds easy but not necessarily done – until now.

Plaza Adelante is a collaborative, innovative community resource for low- and moderate-income Latino families throughout San Francisco. Case Adelante  provides social and economic services for the Latino community. But while housing these types of services under one roof is not new, bringing together resources that are focused on wealth creation and financial literacy for immigrant Latinos certainly is new. They’re truly innovative.  Learn more about them via their website and listen to the podcast via Marketplace Money here (starts at about the 30:00 minute mark). Text to the podcast and pictures here.
