PUENTES NEW ORLEANS
BRIDGING ECONOMIC, RACIAL, AND CULTURAL DIVIDES
Why build walls when you can build bridges instead?
Puentes is a Spanish word meaning “bridges.” Since 2007, Puentes has been building bridges
connecting Latin American immigrants and their children to the greater New Orleans
community. Our work is dedicated to overcoming economic, racial, and
cultural divides and to providing Latin American families and
communities with the resources, knowledge,
and hands-on opportunities they
need to thrive.
