Sheltering Arms is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Benefits of celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month don't stop with Hispanic children. Exposing children of any background to other cultures and heritages has enormous benefits for them, turning them into mini global citizens. Not only does raising your children to be globally aware build essential tools like critical thinking and problem solving, it also helps them foster a deep understanding of the challenges of our world, promotes empathy, and builds communication skills.
How are you celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month?
Here at Sheltering Arms we celebrate the honor, heritage & contributions made by members of the Hispanic community. These celebrations highlight history, storytelling, art & food to commemorate each country's independence.
A few of our team members attended the Conference in Washington, DC. The team made a visit to Capital Hill on behalf of Head Start, where the Georgia Contingency met with staffers from Senator Warnock and Ossoff’s offices. The team later attended a rally to lobby for extended funding for Head Start.
As we continue to push equity, diversity and opportunity, Sheltering Arms is PROUD to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. This month is not only meant to honor Hispanic Heritage but to shine light on all Hispanic Americans and their contributions to America.
