Organization Information

Mission Statement

Empowering immigrants and others to become self-sufficient, productive and civically engaged.

Description

Founded in 1982 as a haven for immigrants and refugees, HUF has grown to serve diverse and multi-cultural working families from the United States as well as more than 25 other countries. We provide a range of wrap-around services to help more than 18,000 clients of all ages, from preschoolers to adults, successfully transition to a productive new life.

HUF offers 12 programs and services in four languages - English, Spanish, Haitian Creole and Sign Language.

South Florida’s unique geographic location has made it a popular destination for the Caribbean and Latin American immigrants, as well as others from throughout the world. Often arriving with little more than the clothes on their backs, a few dollars in pocket change, with no job, language, skills or understanding of the life that awaits them on America’s shores - they still come with hopes and dreams. Hispanic Unity of Florida is proud and grateful to be South Florida’s "Ellis Island" for new immigrants arriving in South Florida.

I am interested in doing volunteer work where children are needed for tutoring or I am needed for making their living environment a safer, cleaner place. I am a 16 year old teenager at University school and have never volunteered outside of my school. Organizations such as habitat for humanity and Amnesty International are intriguing to me. I speak both French and Spanish, aside from English language and i am ready to start where I can be useful
