(PRWEB) July 2, 2003
SMYRNA, GA Â SouthCare Memorial Chapel & Funeral Home is pleased to announce its newly formed service, HISPANIC FUNERAL CARE.
HISPANIC FUNERAL CARE, was developed due to an increased demand for Hispanic funeral services in the Atlanta Metro Area and Northern Georgia.
The operation will be based out of SouthCareÂs Funeral Home on South Cobb Drive in Smyrna, Georgia until a new location for HISPANIC FUNERAL CARE is constructed. The company plans to add additional locations throughout the metro area by the end of 2004.
The company employs two full-time Spanish-speaking funeral representatives and offers 24-hour assistance and response to the Hispanic Community. HISPANIC FUNERAL CARE offers burial services in the United States, Cremation or Transportation of the deceased to any country in the world.
Many Hispanics in the Atlanta Metro area and Northern Georgia have immigrated from Mexico and often desire burial in their home country or village. HISPANIC FUNERAL CARE will prepare the body for transport, arrange for funeral services, complete all of the necessary passports for the deceased and their family members, arrange all flights and coordinate approval from the Mexican Consulate of Protection or the decedentÂs home country.
SouthCare is excited to be the first and only Hispanic Funeral Provider in Atlanta and as well as, the first in the entire State of Georgia.
The companyÂs Executive Director, Chris Benavidez Nuzum, was surprised to learn that a city the size of Atlanta, with all of its diversity in people and services, has never offered Hispanic Funeral Services to the Hispanic Community.
Nuzum states, ÂThere are over a half a million Hispanics living in the metro area and projections show that the Hispanic population to grow to well over a million by the end of 2005. We are happy to assist any family anywhere in the State of Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina or North Carolina.Â
Hector A. Saucedo, Hispanic Funeral CareÂs Primary Representative, feels that HISPANIC FUNERAL CARE will help, service and protect his own race and those who are unable to speak and understand English during one of the most stressful times in their life. Saucedo said that, ÂSome families have experienced a death of a loved one while on their job or are a victim of an accident or crime. We will assist the family in obtaining victim assistance monies provided by The State of Georgia and obtain legal council for them if needed.Â Saucedo continued, ÂOverall, we want to be a resource to the Hispanic Community and provide services that memorialize the life of the deceased.Â
