The Federation of Hidalguenses in California is a nonprofit organization that brings together Hometown Associations from Hidalgo. After being founded in 2004, its aim has been to provide support, protection, advice and assistance to issues faced by Hidalguenses in California and other regions in the Unites States.
The Federation envisions that members of Hidalgo and the community can find allies that will help achieve the goals and projects of the Federation, and can participate as a positive organization for the benefit of the Hispanic culture. The Federation projects in the U.S. focus on education and health and in Mexico on 3-to-1 projects. In California, the Federation provides scholarships to students from Hidalgo attending a U.S. university. In the area of health, the Federation focuses on providing support to members to ensure they are benefited by state health programs.
In the State of Hidalgo the federation has conducted over 200 3-to-1 projects that have benefited largely their communities of origin. Their 3-to-1 projects varies from the paving of streets, to the development of senior homes, a community computer center, small stores, and centers for rehabilitation and care of children with disabilities.
