— A new program is reaching out to Wake County's Latino community. The goal-- to educate the community about natural disasters and break down language barriers.

It's called Project Hope. The program was started after hurricane Fran when many people didn't know where to go for help. Saturday, members of Project Hope met at the Flea Market in Fuquay Varina to provide life-saving information.

The project workers split up into four teams. Each team goes to area schools and churches to answer questions and provide information about natural disasters.
