GOBHI Recognizes Hispanic Heritage Month


National Hispanic Heritage Month September 15 to October 15
From the National Education Association

Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month. GOBHI is committed to promoting the well-being of all Eastern Oregonians, including Latino/a/x individuals who enrich our communities. In our 12-county GOBHI/EOCCO service area, 2021 member enrollment included 27.1% people of Hispanic/Latin/a/x background. We encourage you to celebrate the contributions of Latina/os in Oregon’s behavioral health, business, science, service and food industries, the arts, and countless other fields.


We encourage you to take this time to visit learning resources and events that highlight the rich history and present day contribution of Latino/a/x residents in the United States.
