Moments in our History: Latino Program Added

In 1996, a new grant funded the Latino Outreach Program at Family Shelter Service, making culturally sensitive and bilingual services available at Family Shelter Service for the first time. This initiative was designed to provide services to the growing population of Hispanics in DuPage County, which has increased from eight percent of the total population in 1990 to more than a quarter in 2011.
