Mayor Mark Chilton and U.S. Congressman David Price will speak at the event, slated for 9:45 a.m. on Aug. 13 at the Carrboro Plaza site of off N.C. 54.

Durham-based El Centro Hispano stepped up to fill a void in services for the expanding Orange County Latino population after nonprofit El Centro Latino folded in November.

The Carrboro branch of El Centro, which opened in July, will offer walk-in resource services at first in both English and Spanish. The staff serves as translators, mediators and anything else a non-native speaker could need while navigating daily life, including tax and legal assistance.

As the site gets established, leaders hope to add literacy, youth leadership, tutoring and HIV prevention programs.

El Centro Hispano has a temporary phone number in Carrboro, 943-9424. It’s located in unit FF of Carrboro Plaza and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.
