Acceso Hispano Launches New Online Service Provider Directory
To help inform and empower the Latino population in the United States, Self Reliance Foundation provides an interactive, multi-dimensional online presence with its Acceso Hispano initiative. The fundamental goal of Acceso Hispano is to improve the quality of life of the Hispanic population living in the United States by linking to the support services or information they may need. The site serves as a news platform and communication tool between service providers, promotores and the public, as well as provides educational resources. All portions of the website are available in English and Spanish.
Acceso Hispano has recently launched an online service provider directory as a tool for connecting service providers to the communities which seek them out. The directory currently contains more than 17,000 community organizations, services, and programs throughout the United States, related to education, health, civic participation, finances, violence reduction, arts and culture, science and environment, and immigration. Any 501c3 nonprofit organization, community group, government or educational institution that provides affordable or free and bilingual services is encouraged to add their listing to the database and to utilize the search services to help provide referrals to clients.
