The Latino Community Resource Group (LCRG) was founded and organized in 2013.
In 2013, LCRG became an registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, after many years of working in the community and being the driving force behind the annual Multicultural Resource Fair.
In 2005, a small group of members of our community saw the need and wanted to bring together different organizations across Clark county to provide services and resources for the Latinx community. That’s what paved the way for the Latino Community Resource Fair. The very first fair which was held in the parking lot of the Latino owned “Tienda De Leon” on fourth plain, where about 50 people attended. It had great success, and has been held every year since, as it has grown it’s been held at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, and then Clark College where its currently has been held since 2015. With the number of attendees increasing every year, we intend to be inclusive and serve other underrepresented communities. This event has been transformed into the Multicultural Resource Fair, welcoming all residents living in Clark County, regardless of their demographic background.
In addition to the annual Multicultural Resource Fair, the LCRG also collaborates
with other community organizations and community leaders hosting Know Your
Rights Workshops, Family Emergency Planning Events, Community Forums,
informative sessions, etc. throughout the year.
The LCRG also has monthly meetings where representatives of nonprofit
organizations and state agencies have an opportunity to network with other organizations and share information about the resources and services available for the community.
