Since 1981, first created out of our basement in South West Grand Rapids, The Community Voice / La Voz magazine has focused on highlighting influences, business owners and the people in our communities that are making a difference. Our mission is to keep our communities informed, engaged, educated and entertained. Owner Dr. Jose A.
