Durham County has a rich and diverse population with a growing number of newcomers from outside North Carolina. Many of these newcomers speak Spanish. Durham Connects is prepared to serve the Spanish speaking community. Durham Connects has made an effort to hire bilingual nurses whenever possible. The program also employs two Spanish-speaking translator/interpreters to assist with home visits. In addition, Durham Connects works with Spanish-Speaking community volunteers.

Our Office of Community Resources provides bilingual family support initiatives such as: The Grandparent Network of Durham/Red de Apoyo de los Abuelos de Durham, Neighborhood Support Leaders group/Grupo de Lideres de Apoyo en los Vecindarios and "Cribs for Kids" cribs donations and SIDS prevention training to recipients/"Cribs for Kids" Donación de cunas para bebés y entrenamiento en la prevención de la Muerte de Cuna en Recién Nacidos para los padres.

In addition to bilingual staff support, Durham Connects partners with other community agencies providing support to the Spanish speaking community. In particular, Durham Connects neighborhood volunteers assist Welcome Baby with its Spanish speaking phone support program for new mothers.

Spanish speaking organizations that serve on our Leadership Council advisory group include Que Pasa Media, El Centro Hispano Board of Directors, Concepcion Immaculate Conception church, and the Duke Hospital Latino Health Project.

Durham Connects brochures and website are available in Spanish. For more information about our Spanish language support, please call 919-668-0989.
