Hispanic Access Foundation (HAF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that improves the lives of Hispanics in the United States and promotes civic engagement by educating, motivating and helping them access trustworthy support systems.
We build bridges that connect Latino communities with the information and services they need for a better life.
Working with and through our strategic partnerships with faith and community organizations, we increase access to vital information and community resources for the U.S. Hispanic population.
HAF works closely with Latino faith-based and community partners across the country, at the grassroots level. At the national level we coordinate our projects throughout the U.S.
Our unique model of outreach can mobilize thousands of individuals in virtually any city in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
We also draw on our database of over 17,000 community-based and Hispanic-serving organizations throughout the country that offer bilingual, affordable and culturally appropriate services.
We refer the people we serve to these organizations through our toll-free bilingual helpline and grassroots partners.
Since our Helpline started, it has assisted more than 100,000 individuals in their search for information, support, and affordable services in the communities where they live.
HAF is built upon the values of:
- Strong work ethic
Our vision is that one day every Hispanic individual in America will enjoy:
- Good physical health
- Healthy natural environment
- Quality education
- Economic success
and civic engagement in their communities with the sum of improving the future of America.
HAF and our projects do not discriminate or restrict services based on factors of race, color, sex (including pregnancy), age, disability, veteran status, religion, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, domestic partner status, genetic information or citizenship status.
