In 2005, public school teacher Leticia Bentley was being called on more and more to serve as an interpreter and advocate for Moab's growing immigrant population. As the need for bilingual and multicultural education, advocacy, and crisis intervention grew, Bentley recruited a core of dedicated volunteers who officially formed the Moab Valley Multicultural Center in 2007.
