The Spanish Community of Wallingford (SCOW), or Comunidad Hispana de Wallingford, Inc., was founded in 1972 by a small group of Latinos in Wallingford, Connecticut, who experienced difficulties finding translators, interpreters, employment, and medical assistance within the community. The founders envisioned the organization to be the leading agency to help develop and involve the Hispanic community. To this day, it has been successful in implementing its mission.
The Hispanic Community in Wallingford represents about eight percent of the population and includes people from Puerto Rico and various Latin American countries including Mexico, Ecuador, Colombia and more.
We are always looking for volunteers, if you have an area of expertise that would like to share with our community please let us know.
