Our mission is to improve the quality of life of Hispanic and other families by empowering them to become more self-sufficient, while promoting an intercultural understanding in the Lehigh Valley.

Value Statement

At HCLV, we believe in a community that embraces economic opportunity for all and sees its cultural diversity as a foundation for building a stronger society and a more vibrant economy. We also believe at the heart of change is the individual’s desire and willingness to pursue a path toward their own independence and self-sufficiency.

All people deserve a “voice” in their community and government.

All families have the right to a sustainable wage and an affordable home in a safe neighborhood.

All children deserve a quality education and adults the opportunity to continue learning.

Our senior citizens are valued members of society that deserve to live in an environment of dignity and respect.

Progress is dependent upon the ability to form effective partnerships with others in the community.

All HCLV staff and Board Members are accountable to our constituents, our donors and our community.
