This thesis looks at Latino Resource Center, a Latino nonprofit organization in Sunflower, Kansas, and discusses whether this organization is benefiting the Latino population and the Sunflower community. Interviews with directors, board members, and clients show that although the center is helping its targeted clientele, the majority of Latinos are not receiving help. I suggest ways for the organization to better serve its client base by broadening its funding, recruiting experienced board members, involving individuals representative of the target population, and joining together with other Latino-serving individuals and agencies.
