The Hispanic Center of Great Danbury was founded as a cultural center in 1968 by a group of Puerto Ricans who wanted to preserve their traditions and language and pass them on to the next generation. Throughout the years, as Danbury has seen a younger, more diverse population (both immigrant and U.S. born), the Hispanic Center has changed and adapted. Few changes have been more meaningful than what the Center will be facing in the coming months.
Ingrid Alvarez DiMarzo, Executive Director of the Hispanic Center of Greater Danbury since 2009, will be stepping down as executive director. She has been chosen by the Hispanic Federation for its newly created state director position in Connecticut.
