HAP is a non-profit organization focused on empowering the refugee and immigrant community by moving our clients out of poverty and towards social and financial prosperity. HAP was founded in 1990 to serve a growing Hmong community in Minnesota. We are rapidly expanding to address demand for services, and in the last 25 years, we have grown to become the largest Hmong non-profit organization in the United States. We now offer programming across the nation. HAP is proud that the broader immigrant and refugee community has sought our services, and we serve approximately 14,000 clients annually and have the staff expertise to serve people from 18 nationalities.
We have a unique service model designed by and for the community we serve. Our approach blends social enterprise and economic development with education and family support. The in-depth knowledge of Southeast Asian and immigrant and refugee community, coupled with a commitment to economic advancement, is driving amazing outcomes and award winning programming.
