Hispanic Chamber Welcomes The Creation Of Foundation For Program Development


 
PRLog - May 12, 2014 - DELTONA, FL - The Volusia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's supported initiative is celebrating the launch of The Hispanidad Foundation, Inc. a non-profit organization created to focus the skills and resources of the Hispanic community on the critical civic, educational, scientific, health, cultural and economic development needs of the community.

“We cringe when we hear about the lack of resources or information in the Hispanic community in our region,” said Carlos Valderrama, President of Volusia Hispanic Chamber and founder of Hispanidad Foundation, Inc. “As a community or as a country, we cannot afford to wait. We welcome private and corporate organizations in advancing the cause of Hispanic Americans, especially in this time of enormous growth and development.”

Foundation programs will focus in the following areas:

Education: An educated community is a necessary prerequisite for economic  and social success. The Fund is committed to programs that advance the value and primacy of education, such as combating the high school dropout problem and fostering a college and workforce readiness mentality

Health and Wellness Services - The general health of Hispanics must be addressed and supported. The Fund will commit itself to support preventive programs in the area of mental health and chronic disease, as well as supporting treatment programs that battle illnesses such as diabetes, obesity and Cardiovascular.

Community Development - Building communities that attain the dream of home ownership, while retaining and instilling the special values of our traditions.  Creates an environment conducive to sustaining our overall economic and social progress. The Fund will champion programs that increase the level of tangible assets held by Hispanics, thereby increasing the rate of Hispanic home ownership. It will also support community-based investment efforts designed to foster both economic opportunity and fiscal responsibility.

Arts and Culture - A community that remembers, celebrates and shares its uniqueness with others through song, dance, imagery and other artistic forms of expression serves as a catalyst for inspiration and dynamic change. The Fund will give consideration to programs that present the uniqueness of Hispanic arts and promote the Hispanic cultural traditions in an educational, informational, inclusive and entertaining manner.
