The Hispanic Cultural Center of Idaho (HCCI) is a non-profit organization with a mission to improve the quality of life for all people in the surrounding community as well as to recognize, celebrate, preserve the arts, heritage, and cultural values, while building collaborative relationships and promoting self-sustainability.
In 1995 the Idaho Commission of Hispanic Affairs retained plan-makers to prepare feasibility studies for the creation of a Cultural Center in Idaho for the growing Hispanic population. The studies were sponsored by The Idaho Commission on the Arts and helped determine the needs and steps necessary to implement the Center. HCCI was incorporated in May of 1977, and received its 501(c) (3) non-profit status in April 1998. It functioned as a center without walls until a 33,000 square foot building opened its doors in September 2003.
