Our Mission

Our vision is to create a healthy, united, inclusive, equitable, and diverse community. 

Building connections (bridges/puentes) between Latin American residents and the broader Lakeshore community, especially in Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Ferrysburg (the Tri-Cities). We cultivate these connections by creating opportunities for Latin American culture to be celebrated and for individuals to be equipped to lead, collaborate, serve, and thrive.

We Build Bridges - Puentes - Through...


Increasing the cultural awareness of residents of the Tri-Cities and broader Western Michigan related to the history and contributions of the Hispanic community in the Tri-Cities and North West Ottawa county. 

Cultivate Leaders

Raising funds to be used to help raise up Hispanic leadership in Western Michigan, especially the Tri-Cities, and with particular focus on Hispanic young people. 


Providing support and financial distributions to local or state qualifying tax exempt organizations that make a concrete and positive difference in the life of Hispanic people in Western Michigan and especially the Tri-Cities.
