We’re Moving | Nos Estamos Mudando!!
With great enthusiasm we announce that after eights years Puentes|LatiNOLA has found a new home and WE ARE MOVING!
We are happy to announce that in the coming days we will be relocating our offices to a new, community-friendly location in the heart of Mid-City. This move is a result of our continual efforts to expand our services, grow our capacity, and bring us closer to the community we serve.
Unfortunately, we must push our grand opening blessing celebration a few days due to unforeseen construction delays. Contractors have confirmed and we invite you all to join us to celebrate and bless our home!
