HISPANIC ALLIANCE LAUNCHES WELCOME HUB
TO PROVIDE GUIDANCE TO NEW, EXISTING HISPANIC/LATINO RESIDENTS
CLEVELAND, May 3, 2018 – Hispanic Alliance Inc., launched a Welcome Hub today to help guide the area’s Latino population to much needed services, such as affordable housing, jobs and schools.
Located at W. 25th Street and Clark Avenue, the Welcome Hub is designed to help incoming residents acclimate to a new city and help existing residents find the services they need. The Welcome Hub was partially funded by PNC Bank.
“In the seven months since Hurricane Maria caused significant damage to Puerto Rico, Northeast Ohio has seen an influx of at least 1,200 new residents,” said Juan Molina Crespo, executive director of Hispanic Alliance. “Though they come from an American territory, they still need help finding the basics, such as jobs, services and schools. The Welcome Hub will make their transition easier.”
Hispanic Alliance was established in 2008 to create a unified voice on leadership development, voter registration and civic engagement and community mobilization on issues that affect the Latino community. The nonprofit’s mission expanded as local residents came to the center for help with basic services, such as finding affordable housing.
The Welcome Hub formalizes that natural progression with more connections for basic services and literature in Spanish and English on various needs such as medical facilities and public services. The Welcome Hub also has a new computer lab funded by PNC that local residents can use free of charge to do their own research on needs such as schools, jobs, housing and public services.
