Latin House Inc

Latin House Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2018 with the objective to become the first Latin community Hub in Australia.

We want to make sure the Latino migrants will be taken care of from getting off the plane all the way through to achieving their personal goals in Australia by connecting with the right organizations and providing trustful information.

Our mission is to connect the Latin community through events and activities, forming a hub where everyone can access various services from other organisations including government entities.

We endeavour to support and represent Latino immigrants and refugees in Australia by promoting their rights and supporting their integration into society.

We encourage Latin immigrants to participate in Australian society, uniting all cultures.
