We offer a variety of life changing services.

For ten years Hispanic Outreach of Goodhue County has provided support to the Hispanic community with services and programs that positively impact their quality of life. We are the only such agency that partners with local school districts, city government, and corporations in southeastern Minnesota.

While we offer many services, one that is often unseen but highly important is our Youth and Family Program (formerly called RISES).  

Here is the story of how the program – combined with another of our long-running programs – had a big impact on one Hispanic student:

       
       Juan joined our Youth and Family Program in 5th grade. He struggled with school. By 8th grade, his classroom behavior was disruptive. Our staff recommended he receive services at Hispanic Family Therapy - a service we’ve provided since 2014 in partnership with the CARE Clinic. He did and today he’s doing well socially and emotionally, and is thriving at school.


Our Youth and Family Program is slowly but surely changing the alarming local performance gap. Last year, for example, 19 of 26 participating students gained a whole percentage point in their GPA! 

 We need your help to meet the growing demand for this program – and all our programs. 

We also work with Hispanic individuals and families in difficult situations.

We help families throughout southeastern Minnesota to  integrate into the community by assisting with:

  • Translation & Interpreting Services  
    • both to individuals and business owners
  • Advocacy and support services 
  • Emergency Funds
  • Notary Services 
  • Referrals & Community Resources 
  • Spanish Family Therapy - the only one of its kind south of the Twin Cities.

We bring people together.

And we celebrate Hispanic diverse arts and cultures with our vibrant, annual Hispanic Heritage Festival. Through live entertainment such as folkloric dancers, Hispanic musicians and other artisan artists who come to give us an otherwise hard to get access to the arts! There are informational booths, great authentic Latin American  food and lots of fun for young and old. This fun, friendly and free event brings people together in a way that allows true understanding and new relationships to develop across cultures and language barriers.
