ABOUT

Track record of success.

Providing top-flight social services with compassion since 1976.

 

HAO was founded by Lupe Pearce to serve the Latino community of the Lehigh Valley. Started in a one-room office on Chew Street with $50 in seed money, HAO has always used its core principles to guide its work--promoting self-reliance and stressing actions that make positive impacts in our society.

We offer a variety of services that reflect the changing needs of the growing Latino community. As a fully bilingual agency, we offer all counseling and training in English and Spanish, in a culturally-sensitive environment.
