Tri-Cities Puentes Initiative

Building Bridges and Cultural Understanding 

Tri-Cities Puentes Initiative is an outgrowth of the 2019 Grand Haven Hispanic Heritage Fiesta. We received our formal 501c3 status in 2022, the Tri-Cities Puentes Initiative (TCPI). Puentes is the Spanish word for bridge — a powerful symbol for our area and the inspiration for what our organization wants to do: build bridges between Latin American cultures and the larger Tri-Cities community.

We hope to celebrate the Hispanic Heritage and the Latin American members of our community and build bridges between the Hispanic community and the residents of the Tri-Cities area. 

As TCPI and the Fiesta continue to grow, the need for your support is essential. Please consider supporting us with a gift of any amount possible.
