As we look forward to the future, La Plaza remembers and honors the legacy of our beginnings.
La Plaza is the longest standing Latino nonprofit in Central Indiana, established in 1971 as El Centro Hispano. The center was established to address the needs of the growing Hispanic community in Central Indiana.
In 2004, the Hispanic Education Center, FIESTA Indianapolis, and El Centro Hispano merged into La Plaza Inc., bringing together three separate long-standing resources and services into one organization to provide better and more efficient support to the Latino community of Central Indiana.
Today, La Plaza serves as the trusted liaison between Latinos and the larger Indianapolis community.
