In 1989, a United Way task force addressed the needs of the Latino community in Oklahoma County including the development of a pool of leadership to represent Latino interests on boards and commissions. At the end of 1990, the task force facilitated the development of a new program. Every agency in the United Way system was invited to submit a proposal to incubate a Latino program, which would later become an autonomous agency.

Neighborhood Services Organization (NSO) and Community Council of Central Oklahoma’s joint proposal was accepted and the Latino Community Development Agency (LCDA) was established in March 1991 as a program of Neighborhood Services Organization.
