Economic Development Services
Latino community members learn the skills needed to help their families thrive. Supporting Latino owned businesses enriches the community, but more importantly allows individuals to provide for their families. Most of the families we serve have been a part of the Columbia Gorge community for over two decades.
Raices farming cooperative teaches individuals how to use sustainable, pesticide-free methods to grow food for their family and friends.
Promoting Prosperity provides education, business planning resources and guidance to help Latino entrepreneurs set up or expand their businesses. We also provide assistance in securing funding to help make their dream a reality. To date we have helped over thirty businesses in Hood River County.
