More information about the Hispanic Federation: Founded in 1990, HF seeks to empower and advance the Hispanic community, support Hispanic families and strengthen Latino institutions through work in the areas of education, health, immigration, civic engagement, economic empowerment and the environment.
Below are some in-depth examples of HF’s grassroots/grass tops programs and their effectiveness:
Disaster Relief – Mexico and Puerto Rico: HF’s UNIDOS initiative catalyzes long-term recovery in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria through 90+ projects with nonprofit agencies, local foundations, municipal governments, and corporations. In Mexico, HF and Fundación Azteca joined forces to build over 400 homes for affected families after the 2017 earthquakes that devastated Mexico City and other areas.
College Success Programs: HF has secured and invested over 4 million of dollars to expand its groundbreaking CREAR Futuros (To Create Futures) Latino college success initiative to 9 universities in four states. Today, CREAR Futuros has grown to help 1,000 Latino students in 8 colleges across four states stay and graduate from college through peer and professional mentoring, leadership development trainings, academic tutoring, internships and social services.
Nonprofit Advocacy: HF and a coalition of African American and Asian American leaders has secured over $12 million for the Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF). A landmark initiative, it bolsters non-profit capacity in areas such as financial management, board development and outcome evaluation.
Public Education:HF launched a multi-state Affordable Care Act (ACA) public education campaign focused on consumer education, health plan enrollment and building the capacity of Latino nonprofits to inform and help Latinos navigate the new health exchanges. More than 200,000 Latino individuals and families were reached during the first two years of the campaign.
