Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month is an annual celebration of the generations of individuals who have positively shaped the fabric of America through their many contributions. At Heartland Alliance, we celebrated by asking staff and volunteers what Hispanic Heritage Month means to them and how this understanding influences their work to support our participants. Hear from a few our team members what themes most resonate with them.
