Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our vision is a future where Latino children, youth, and families have equitable access to opportunities to succeed, are empowered to realize their full potential and are affirmed in their culture.

CHCF employs a grassroots focus which allows us to combine direct service with policy work to amplify minority voices at the local, state, and national levels.

Culturally competent, highly trained committed staff from the target communities.
Active Board of Directors' participation and engagement in program and fundraising activities.
Wide network of affiliated partners.
Community support and engagement.
Thirty-three year history of working in and serving the NYC Latino community.
Strong base of support from public, private and individual donors.

CHCF partnered with a National Urban Fellow who possesses numerous years of experience in the financial sector to provide small business technical assistance to 140 child care providers in NYC. She developed a tool to start collecting baseline information that would help develop a technical assistance plan with the providers. Once she began using this tool, we discovered that the majority of providers did not have separate business accounts, nor did they create business plans or develop operating budgets. Through this focused work, we found the majority of them were not aware that any of those items were possible or important for them and their business. Most providers, however, were interested in learning more about these resources and tools. By the end of the program, 64% of the 140 providers demonstrated an increased knowledge regarding business principles as related to business development through business marketing training. The information we learned from these providers will be used in the preparation of a White Paper containing the research and findings as it relates to family day care providers and their relationship and integration into the business community. CHCF aims to use the White Paper to help inform the financial sector and government officials of the needs of these unique micro-enterprises, with the intention that it can lead to the development of resources that meet the business needs of the Latino child care provider community.

Most recently, CHCF has directly served 5,171 families, children, and child care providers with an overall reach of 23,770 individuals through this service. Our Early Care and Education Institute provides culturally-informed and bilingual professional development, resources and referrals for families, one-on-one home-based coaching for child care providers, small business grants, and offers various accreditation training courses. CHCF has reached 1,178 children and families through its Youth Development Programs by providing STEM enrichment, healthy living classes, internship programs, and drop out prevention and teen pregnancy prevention education. Current funding for our After-School programs does not cover the provision of mental health interventions for the vulnerable population CHCF works with. Taking into account the psychological and social conditions these communities face, CHCF would like to provide crisis interventions when necessary; family interventions when appropriate; and referrals to additional supports, such as domestic violence and child abuse or neglect counseling, educational assessments, regular therapy, medical care, housing services and case management.
