Hosanna Community Foundation History
HCF is a Florida based 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 1995 to serve the needs of inner-city families in the greater Liberty City/Brownsville area of Miami-Dade County. HCF’s approach is based on the combined strength of community partnerships, core professional staff, and community volunteers. HCF uses Collective Impact, Strategic Prevention Framework, and Annie E. Casey’s Evidence Success Fund Mapping and Strategic Finance components as guiding principles to develop its community prevention plan.
HCF’s usage of these evidence-based models as guiding principles has led to an increased understanding of underlined root causes of the identified risk and protective factors of the community and family life within the community that contributes to the wellness of children. The agency’s vehicle to improve youth wellness is to provide safe places of learning, safe havens of hope for the families, and prosocial activities that serve as pathways to success for program participants. Through diverse activities, HCF aims to reassert the community’s youth a sense of hope for the future through positive youth and adult relationships and alliances that assist them in navigating the maze of childhood and adolescence to achieve a productive adult lifestyle.
