About Hispanos Unidos de Buffalo:
HUB has been providing services to the Western New York Community for 30 years. In early 1980, The Puerto Rican American Community Association (PRACA), the Puerto Rican Chicano Committee (PRCC) and La Alternativa (LA) leaders came together to maximize their resources and solve issues affecting the Latino community. In July 1989, all three organizations formally merged to create HUB and offer integrated care services on the east and west side of Buffalo.
