North Shore Hispanic Association

The NSHA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to strengthen a thriving Hispanic community in the North Shore area through cultural awareness, educational activities and community involvement.

The goal is to enhance and uplift the entire North Shore community by identifying that which makes us the same while celebrating the unique gifts and contributions the Hispanic and other cultures each contribute to the whole community.

Local, national and global events require greater understanding and acceptance of cultures and ideas different from our own. This is the uniqueness of America and the source of its strength and endurance.
