Elgin hispanic network


About us

The Elgin Hispanic Network was founded in 1987 to provide a place for businesses and organizations to connect, collaborate, and exchange ideas to improve the quality of life of the Hispanic community in Elgin, Illinois. 

Since then, we have encouraged Hispanic members of our local business community, fostered strong relationships among members of all ethnicities, found cooperative solutions to issues pertaining to the Hispanic community, and become a respected network of leaders in the city of Elgin.

We are now the leading Latino network in Elgin and the surrounding area.
