La Plaza

Today's #FridayFocus highlights the contributions of La Plaza, 'Indy's premier organization for providing educational programs, health and social service resources, workforce development training and access to healthcare for the over 3000 Latino families that call our city home. 

 La Plaza was founded in 2004 when the Hispanic Education Center, FIESTA Indianapolis, and El Centro Hispano decided to join forces to better serve the rising Latino population. 

Since the merger, La Plaza has experienced tremendous growth, and according to the 2018 annual report, the organization's impact can be felt throughout all of central Indiana. During 2018 La Plaza awarded five academic scholarships totaling $40,000 and the annual Feliz Navidad Program assisted 249 families, which included 379 adults and 662 children.  

La Plaza is definitely making an impact in our city and it is for this reason that @HerdStrategies has chosen it for today's #FridayFocus. To learn more about La Plaza and find information on upcoming programs and events, visit their website at
