Latinos from the entire county will gather, promises to be, once again, an extraordinary way to provide to the Latino Community with the resources that are available to them throughout Dutchess County.

The focus of the event this year will be on “Education,” local Colleges and Schools will be present to create awareness of the importance of learning English as second language, to obtain a High School Diploma or GED and to pursuit undergraduate education. This is yet, another opportunity to give to our community the tools we need to empower minority groups to succeed. We are delighted to have several organizations presenting that day:  Health Quest will focus on “how to access health care services and how to help your family prevent chronic illnesses,” Attorney Gerardo Gutierrez will speak about on how “to create awareness of DUI/DWI”, Catholic Charities Community Services will “bring Immigration Law updates” & Family Services, will present “Domestic Violence Awareness.”  All informational sessions will be presented in Spanish.
