Our Mission

“Inspiring and organizing communities to build volunteer organizations empowered to pursue social justice.”

For Community Organizing

As a 501 (c)3 organization on a mission to inspire and organize communities to build volunteer organizations empowered to pursue social justice. Our social justice grassroots organizing work is focused on Civic Engagement, Education Equity, Health and Safety, and LGBTQIA+ Equality. We believe that those most directly impacted by inequity have the knowledge to implement community driven solutions when empowered with the tools, training and resources.

DHF has 12 Vecinos Unidos® chapters in Kern, Tulare, Fresno and Antelope Valley (Los Angeles) counties. DHF Organizers use a grassroots house meeting model to form neighborhood organizations called “Vecinos Unidos®” (Neighbors United). Vecinos Unidos® members are empowered through hands-on leadership training to lead civic engagement and collective action efforts to hold elected officials accountable and secure positive outcomes to address the needs of their community. Vecinos Unidos® have been successful in advocating for more parks, paved roads, pools, sewer connections, and much more.
