Multi-Cultural Center

LSS and the Multi-Cultural Center of Sioux Falls began integrating programming in October 2022.

LSS continues to actively listen to the growing needs of our community and gather insight from individuals and groups from all cultural backgrounds in Sioux Falls, and strategically plan and apply those insights to ensure that the MCC is a valuable and vibrant resource for our community.

We are committed to making Sioux Falls and South Dakota a welcoming community for individuals from all backgrounds. There will be more exciting developments to come as LSS continues the integration process.
