About Us

About Us

Hogar Hispano Inc. (HHI) is a not-for-profit 50l(c)(3) corporation founded by the UnidosUS
in 2004. Formed with a goal to flexibly manage different types of real estate assets, we work in partnership with other community based organizations to support housing, wealth preservation and creation for both Latino and low income families.

We are also active in developing commercial real estate projects in the US through our partnerships with UnidosUS affiliates and other non-profit organizations.

Headquartered in Washington DC, HHI has operated many of its programs through a field office in Phoenix, AZ since 2011. Today, HHI manages REO and Distressed Mortgage activities in 31 U.S. states with projects concentrated in Arizona, Texas, California, Nevada, Michigan, Maryland, Florida, Ohio, Georgia and Illinois. All of these communities have been hardest hit by the economic crisis and have high concentrations of underserved Latino families.

HHI’s Core Competencies

HHI’s core competencies, mobilized to strengthen Hispanic Communities, include:

  1. Acquiring and renovating distressed REO and reselling or leasing the renovated homes to income-qualified families and/or individuals.
  2. Acquiring distressed, low value mortgages and working with the homeowners to modify their loans to ensure affordability, to preserve the families’ investment, and to increase neighborhood stability.

Our Goal

Hogar Hispano Inc. provides economic stability for families/individuals by improving homes which in turn improve the communities in which they live in. Our goal is to improve the quality of families/individuals lives by deploying outside resources in to their neighborhoods and protecting assets via foreclosure prevention and by providing education programs such as budget development, homeownership counseling and pre-homeownership education that lead to more informed buyers and smarter homeowners.
