The "OLAnet" is the Ohio Latino Network Directory, which can be used to find local Latino Serving Organizations near you.
Navigate through the directory by using the drop down arrow in the upper left-hand corner to filter and sort by county, type of service or organization, etc. The directory provides access to the organization’s website, social media and other contact information.
The OLAnet directory of the Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs is a tool designed for the use of the Office of Hispanic/Latino Affairs. As such, the Office controls the content, sets all database policies, and reserves the right to include or excludes individuals, entities, agencies, and organizations on the basis of the needs of the Office in executing the mission of the Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs. This database and search tools are made available via the internet in the public interest and in the spirit of Ohio's Sunshine Laws. As such, the database is an information-only internal document and does not constitute any type of endorsement of individuals, entities, agencies, or organizations by the Office or the Commission. Furthermore, there is no such entitlement to any person or entity to have an entry in the database.
