Dallas, TX – DFW International Community Alliance announces a new title in its series of  GUIDES for NEW AMERICANS:  Guide to Economical Health Services, made possible by support from DaimlerChrysler Financial Services in Roanoke, TX. This free 40 page directory, along with the new 2007 edition of Guia de Servicios Economicos de Salud, sponsored by Pfizer, is now available at libraries in Dallas, Irving, and Plano, as well as from the Mexican Consulate and global community organizations.

The first Guide was published in 2003, and currently six titles are available, offering basic information for these North Texas residents.  According to the organization's 2005 report, 40% of North Texas residents are immigrants (foreign-born and their children). In addition to distribution through libraries and organizations, all the titles are available as downloads from the DFW International Community Alliance website at www.dfwinternational.org/resource_center/

Brad Quick, Center Manager for DaimlerChrysler Financial Services, says "DaimlerChrysler is proud  to sponsor the DFW International Health Guide for 2007. DaimlerChrysler shares DFW International 's commitment to social responsibility in the Dallas Fort Worth community."

DFW International Community Alliance is the portal for global North Texas, a network of 1,600 of the region’s ethnic and internationally-focused civic, community and educational organizations.  The organization promotes and links North Texas ethnic and immigrant groups through its website and cultural calendar at www.dfwinternational.org, that receives over ten million hits a month.  DFW International Community Alliance also produces the Dallas International Festival and International DFW Month (March 6 to April 8, 2007).
