Bowling Green, KY – Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) is pleased to announce the hosting of the fourth annual Hispanic Resource Fair on Thursday, April 18, from 2:00–5:00 pm at the Main Campus, located at 1845 Loop Drive in Bowling Green, KY. This event is free and open to the community.

As the Latino population at SKYCTC continues to grow, the Hispanic Resource Fair provides a vital opportunity to foster community cohesion, improve communication, and enhance access to essential resources. Addi Hernandez, Latino Outreach Specialist at SKYCTC, emphasizes the significance of this event in breaking down barriers faced by the local Latino community.

"One of the significant barriers that the local Latino community currently faces is knowing whom to go to for help," says Hernandez. "Understanding the legal system and accessing medical care can, at times, be impossible for those who do not speak the English language."

Hernandez, in collaboration with partner agencies, is diligently organizing the Hispanic Resource Fair to ensure access to resources and services for the Hispanic population in the area.

"Our goal is to have vendors from around Bowling Green who offer services in Spanish or have staff proficient in Spanish," explains Hernandez. "This event is meant to guide individuals in accessing vital resources and services."

Leyda Becker, International Community Liaison for the City of Bowling Green, underscores the importance of overcoming language barriers to enhance community engagement.

"It really makes it difficult to participate actively in the community and be engaged when language is a barrier," says Becker. "This will be a great opportunity to improve the quality of life in our community."

A wide array of resources and information will be available in Spanish from various agencies, including Kentucky Legal Aid, Bowling Green Neighborhood and Community Services, Hope Harbor, Passport by Molina Healthcare, South Central Workforce Development Board, Adult Education, Bowling Green Police Department, and Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College.

The event is generously sponsored by Anthem Kentucky Medicaid.
