In 2008, what started from a few parents from North Sacramento who were concerned there was not enough cultural programming for their students has now developed into a non-profit, Hmong Youth and Parents United (HYPU) with a team that is motivated to serve, advocate and change their community. At Hmong Youth and Parents United, we provide several programming and services that support our community ranging from youth circles, healing circles, senior support programming, addressing health equity through our community health workers, and providing cultural and performing arts programming. We truly believe in investing in our youth and young adults and giving them a voice and platform to be the change in our community. HYPU’s team, Board of Directors, advisors, partners donors, liaisons, and volunteers are all supporters of our mission, vision, values, and goals. 

Giving Activity


Our mission is to empower underserved communities by offering culturally sensitive educational, social, and economic services and resources to youth, adults, and parents.

Together, we unite individuals to construct a resilient and inclusive community where all can flourish.


Senior Day Social Recreational Program is currently underfunded. We are in need of funds to support the activities and food that is provided each session. These activities help address the senior's mental and physical health, depression, and many of their health needs.

The Performing Arts and Culture Program is in need of funds to provide free classes to the public. These classes provide the community an opportunity to learn about Hmong language and cultural arts.

Equity Statement

HYPU is committed to creating an environment that is diverse, inclusive, and equitable where all staff, members, partners, vendors, and board members are treated with respect and dignity.

For the purposes of this statement, diversity refers to race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual identity, familial status, age, disability, and socioeconomic status; Inclusion is valuing, respecting, and encouraging the full participation of each individual in the life and leadership of the organization; Equity is a process that ensures all people have the opportunity to contribute, develop, and grow despite historical, structural, legislative, racial, and socio-economic inequities.

We are an organization that celebrates the rich diversity of the Greater Sacramento Region. We will not tolerate discrimination, biases, harassment, or bullying of any kind. Regardless of race, socio-economic status, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, nationality, gender, or marital status, we are an organization that celebrates the richness of our community.

As an organization and Board of Directors, we agree to be guided by these principles and pledge that they will be reflected in our vision, mission, strategic planning, programming, governance, and board composition. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion extends to our staff, our members, and the programs we develop and support.
