Celebrating Hispanic and Latino history, cultures, and contributions 



Celebrating Hispanic and Latino history, cultures, and contributions 

National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the many contributions, achievements, and diverse cultures of the Latino community—people whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. 


Why celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month?


At Self-Help, many of our branch communities are rich in various Hispanic cultures, from Mexican to Cuban to South American and beyond. Hispanic Heritage Month is a great reminder of how much stronger diversity makes us all: when we share our food, music, culture, traditions, and wisdom, we are all enriched. 

We also recognize that many of our community members with Hispanic backgrounds have faced unjust barriers in accessing financial services and opportunities. Hispanic Heritage Month reminds us that our work of expanding opportunity to all—especially those who have been systematically excluded—is critical. 

We all thrive when we work together to ensure everyone has access to ownership and economic opportunity. 

Thank you for joining us in that work, and we invite you to join us in celebrating the achievements and cultures of our wonderful Hispanic members and communities!
