Open Arms Hispanic Ministry has been welcoming, accompanying, and partnering with Latino immigrants in Wayne Co., Ohio and surrounding areas for over twenty years. Open Arms started when a group of folks, including Raul Tadeo, noticed the growing number of Latino immigrants in the Wayne County area and felt called to minister to them.

Today, Open Arms employs Pablo Delgado to do the work of welcoming the immigrants to our community. Open Arms staff provide transportation and translation for work, doctor’s appointment, court hearings, dentist appointments and more. Another significant focus of energy is aiding individuals to locate housing and work. Open Arms representatives have also partnered with local employers to develop better workplace environments for immigrants.  Pablo views his over-arching goal throughout all these services as communicating the love of Christ to people from all walks of life.
