National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) is a time to celebrate and honor the culture, history, heritage and contributions of Spanish, Caribbean and Central and South American people in the United States. With North County’s close proximity to the U.S./Mexico border, our community has long been shaped by Hispanic and Latino-owned and led businesses and organizations. In observance of the month, we’ve compiled just a few community and business resources for Hispanic and Latino residents along the 78 Corridor. More details can be found here
