El Centro Hispano: a vital part of Lancaster’s rich cultural history.

Since the early 1940s, diverse groups have found hope and opportunity in Lancaster’s prosperous region. One of those diverse groups is the Latino community that today represents about 40% of the population within the City of Lancaster! This extraordinary statistic reflects a vigorous pattern of growth over the decades that brought with it a surge of diversity and culture that has directly contributed to many of Lancaster’s most appreciated qualities.

Answering The Call

With this sustained pattern of growth, the Spanish American Civic Association, now known as SACA, was established in 1973 to help the Latino population assimilate to life in Lancaster. Today, the mission of SACA has expanded to serve every ethnicity, age, and ability. The ever-growing list of programs and services is centered on one mission: to uplift and restore marginalized communities through human, economic, and social services, while supporting cultural identities.
