We Inspire Immigrant Communities to Thrive in Western Colorado

Through Leadership Development, Advocacy, and Direct Assistance.

Did You Know?

Many immigrants struggle to access basic support, resources, and education on their rights as they transition to build a life for their family in the US.

Our organization, the Hispanic Affairs Project, advocates for REAL CHANGE in our organization and systems. We envision communities where cultural diversity is embraced, and immigrants actively contribute to creating a more equitable society by developing community leaders.

Through education, enrichment, and encouragement of immigrant families, we strive to address the barriers to integration so that everyone has a chance to fulfill their dreams and potential.

I support HAP because this amazing organization, staffed by compassionate and knowledgeable people, provides services to our immigrant community that are not delivered by any other organization in the region. We are so fortunate to have HAP in our community!

– Robyn C.

 

Three Prong Mission of the Hispanic Affairs Project

HAP’s core value is to advocate for Real Change so that immigrant communities can thrive in Western Colorado. We are purveyors of opportunities and uplifting experiences for our members to build skills, develop leadership qualities and to be the driving force of change in the systems.

Community Advocacy

HAP believes that our community has the power to build the future they want for themselves. We are committed to developing strong leaders through our work to advocate for local, state, and federal policies that increase access to the resources that people need to thrive.

Outreach and Education

Through awareness, training, and education HAP cultivates leaders who can positively impact the future of our community. We foster a culture within our organization that educates, enriches, and encourages immigrant families.

Direct Assistance

HAP provides immigrant families valuable resources and tools which allows them to successfully navigate the US system. We provide legal assistance, helping people get CO-RCSA driver’s licenses, IDs, training on programs and how to access life-changing resources.

Why Does the Hispanic Affairs Project Exist?

Immigrant families in Western Colorado need social and economic stability so they can develop a sense of belonging in their new community.

Sadly, this sense of belonging does not happen organically. Instead, immigrant families often feel marginalized, face cultural barriers, and have limited access to resources.

Here’s the truth: we can’t move forward as a just society if our community doesn’t have equitable access to the resources they need to succeed. The larger the inequality gap, the harder it is for families to prosper in their new community.

This is why we exist.

We Build Communities…

where cultural diversity is embraced;

where immigrants actively contribute as leaders; and

where prosperity is created through justice and equity.

You are a vital part of the mission! With your donation, you enable Hispanic Affairs Project to help more immigrant families find stability, training, and support.

My name is Susana. I thank the Hispanic Affairs Project for helping me pay my rent; it was a great support. The impact that the Hispanic Affairs Project has had on me, my family, and my community, is that through its leadership, advocacy, and programs, I have learned to fight for my rights and to understand that a united and informed community can achieve lasting changes—that together we can achieve equitable changes for all.”

– Susana R.
