Founded in 1990, HF seeks to support Hispanic families and strengthen Latino institutions through work in the areas of education, health, immigration, civic engagement, economic empowerment, & the environment. In response to the immense devastation created by Hurricane Maria, HF convened government, community and philanthropic institutions and leaders to create the UNIDOS Disaster Relief and Recovery Program. The goal of UNIDOS is to serve the immediate and long-term needs of families and communities in Puerto Rico. HF has helped to coordinate hundreds of donation drives in the U.S. mainland, distributed millions of pounds of food, water and essentials to those most affected by the storm, delivered emergency relief aid to the 78 hard-hit municipalities, and seeded 13 million dollars to support emergency relief and recovery projects throughout Puerto Rico.
