dc.description.abstract There is a lack of information on service delivery and the utilization of services by the Latino population in Davis, CA. The researcher conducted a quantitative and qualitative study in which thirty Latino participants filled out a survey and the researcher performed face-to-face interviews with three selected community leaders from different social service agencies in the city of Davis. The study aimed to investigate the perceptions of community needs and awareness from both sides of the spectrum; and examine the relationship between the level of awareness of community resources and the utilization of such services by the Latino community. The research findings concluded that the higher the need for community resources the more likely participants will utilize services if offered in Spanish. Survey participants with a higher level of education demonstrated a lower level of awareness of community resources in Davis. Finally, the reason why there is a paucity in outreaching efforts by social service agencies may be largely due to budget cuts. en
