When cutting the inaugural ribbon, the President of CODHEY, Miguel Óscar Sabido Santana, pointed out that initially the new space will offer the service of receiving complaints and will provide guidance in cases that are not the competence of this body, and will subsequently seek to carry out activities dissemination and training.
The offices are located at calle 54 no. 847 between 131 and 133 in the San José Tecoh neighborhood and its hours will be from 8 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon, Monday through Friday.
