How the Hispanic Impact Fund makes a difference:
A child who is prepared for kindergarten is four to five times more likely to pass state assessments by the 3rd grade. By focusing on the youngest children in our community, we can improve educational outcomes for years to come.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Along with access to affordable health care, when armed with accurate and culturally competent information about healthy habits, Hispanics have significantly improved health outcomes.
JOB SKILLS & ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Access to capital and workforce development training to combat the wages of unskilled labor are vital Latino entrepreneurs and families looking to be part of the economic success Austin has come to be known for.
