Why Give?

We welcome immigrants from every country.

When our clients step in our building, many of them are taking the first step in becoming vibrant, participating members of the community. Despite the obstacles presented by the pandemic, HACES continued to fulfill its mission last fiscal year and served over 7,500 people!

We're investing in future.

HACES is proud to offer the Parent Mentor Program, which teaches parents how to strengthen the skills they need to support their children by actively participating in their child’s classroom. Building strong ties between teachers, parents, students, and the school community helps to ensure the student’s immediate and long-term success.

We're building community,

Our programs guide applicants, assist families, and help them advocate for services that may help them overcome economic hardship.
