get involved with the hispanic network

We’ve come a long way...

In the beginning HispNet was created more than 20 years ago for Hispanic Self Sufficiency workers to network, focus on policies and learn how to best serve the Hispanic immigrant population.

Now, the Hispanic Network's mission and goals have evolved over time. HispNet is no longer exclusively for Hispanic and Self Sufficiency employees. We are open to all who want to expand their knowledge and resources so we can deliver more effective and culturally appropriate services.

"HispNet’s common goal is to continually improve services for clients, as well as to increase knowledge of available resources and policies for state employees that serve the population."-- Oscar Herrera​​
