This rating was published 05/01/2019 and includes data from FY2017, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Latino Health Access (LHA) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1993 in Santa Ana, California. We reach out to residents in laundromats, garages, churches and our recently-opened new headquarters to combat serious public health problems plaguing a community of uninsured and under-served families. We train promotores, or community workers, to educate their own neighbors about diabetes, breast cancer, obesity, domestic violence, parenting and more. Each of our programs has been born from needs expressed by our own residents who subsequently engage their neighbors and friends. We hope you will join us in our mission for a more healthy community, whether you come to our morning walks, our afternoon exercise classes or to visit our own park and community center in one of America's densest cities.
