Our mission is to utilize our economic, social services, advocacy, and cultural programs to educate and strengthen Nashville's Hispanic and immigrant communities.
Our programs that focus on education and literacy are the foundation of the work that we do. Our Early Literacy Program and Bilingual Story Times allow parents and children to develop a love of reading and learning from an early age. This in turn encourages children to read more in school and assists them in achieving their reading levels and goals at a faster pace.
The Adult Literacy Program includes our Adult English Classes, HiSet Classes (GED Equivalency), Adult Computer Classes, Entrepreneurship, and other seasonal classes and workshops offered for a nominal fee.
Our Baila School is all about learning the art of dance, music, and culture. We think it is important that every child gets the opportunity to learn how to express themselves through movement and song, and that these skills that they learn will be taken with them wherever they go in life.
HFF has been a great resource for families that are recovering from disasters.
THE NEED right now is for assistance to the survivors from the Foxcroft Apartment complex on Paragon Mills Rd in Nashville. Many families have been displaced and have lost all of their belongings due to the fire that destroyed their building Wednesday, June 22, 2022.
As we help these families recover from such a devastating disaster, replace their belongings, and heal from the trauma, we invite you to help us assist these families in need.
Right now the greatest need is financial as we work on rehousing the families and replacing items burned in the fire. In the weeks to come, we will be updating everyone on the stages of relief needed. Every dollar counts when you are dealing with replacing a home lost to disaster. Give today and help a family find shelter, food, and basic necessities.
Your help is urgently needed, please click on the photo to be taken to the donation page to help out these families now!
HFF founded and hosts two health fairs: Dia de La Mujer, Live Out Love Nashville.
Día de La Mujer was created to be a space to celebrate, empower, and encourage Hispanic and Immigrant women by connecting them to health services from all over Nashville in one place. This year women and their families had access to free mammograms, raffles, job fair, and more. There was also the opportunity to create a free medical ID for children.
When Live Out Love Nashville was created in 2020, it was the first time the health service providers and schools of Nashville ever came together to reach the community in one event. They bring free mobile clinics, dental checkups, food bags, blood pressure tests, vision testing, mental health screening, unused/old medication disposal, and more! “To serve somebody with their gifts and talents, that’s love” -Diane Janbakhsh
The Hispanic Family Foundation is actively involved in the community where we live. Our local community outreach includes food drives, community baby showers, health fairs, back to school programs, and cultural events.
