Latino immigrants in Manchester now have a place to go for free referral services. 

The Centro Latino de Hospitalidad, located at the Catholic parish St. Anne-St. Augustin, aims to become the central place for Latinos to get help figuring out where to go for things like housing and legal services.

The center will be open on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and be staffed by volunteers from Sisters of Mercy and local colleges, with help from the Granite State Organizing Project.

En New Hampshire, la población latina es 4 por ciento de todo el estado. Pero la comunidad ha crecido poco a poco. En Nashua, hay votantes latinos que quieren participar en las elecciones de la próxima semana pero algunos tienen dificultades al encontrar la información que necesitan.

Food, music and dance from Latino, Caribbean and African traditions will fill Manchester's Veterans Park this Saturday. But there’s also a focus on engaging young people to get involved with their communities

One of Diego Cataño’s favorite parts of the We Are One festival is when the music starts, and different people are dancing to beats from around the world. Cataño's been organizing these festivals for 18 years and besides bringing people from all backgrounds together he's also talking with younger Latinos about leading community events like this one.

As Granite Staters watch this year's World Cup tournament, many from abroad are following their home teams closely. NHPR's Daniela Allee went to a Colombian bakery in Nashua Tuesday to talk with Colombians as their team took on England.

Vanessa Guerra said she woke up on Tuesday at 5 a.m. already thinking about the match.

She usually watches Colombia's World Cup games at home with her mom. When she's not there, she heads to Latin Bakery and Multiservice on Lowell Street.

Emily Heath is Senior Pastor at the Congregational Church in Exeter, and she recently returned from a trip to her hometown, Orlando. She was among five New England responders to provide what she calls “spiritual first aid” to people dealing with trauma from the shooting. Pastor Emily joined NHPR’s Peter Biello to discuss her experience.

So what was it like to be there, on the ground with those folks, helping them out?
