Homebuying Hispanics and language students reaping benefits of Conexion Americas programs

The Nashville Business Journal reports on the success of two Conexion Americas programs: Puertas Abiertas (Open Doors) and Language Exchange. Over 40 Hispanic families have become homeowners as a result of Puertas Abiertas. Language Exchange pairs English speakers and Spanish speakers for language and cultural exchange.

"'Local organizations such as Conexión Américas have worked hard to make Nashville a place where cultural differences do not isolate and divide people,' says Vera Kutzinski, director of the Center for the Americas at Vanderbilt University."
