$10,000 Goal

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


HYPU's mission is to empower underserved communities by providing and promoting culturally sensitive educational, social, and economic opportunities and resources to underserved communities, such as the Hmong, in the greater Sacramento region.

HYPU is committed to assisting underserved communities in attaining the highest practicable quality of life and thriving in the areas of culture, family, health, and education.


Senior Day Program is 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 Scholarship Program is a program with no grant funding. The scholarship committee is made up of dedicated individuals who volunteer their time in the application and reward process along with fundraising for the scholarships with the support of a passionate staff member.

The Performing Arts and Culture Program is in need of funds to provide a stipend for instructors and materials for classes. These classes provide the community of Sacramento and any interested individuals an opportunity to learn, appreciate, participate, and practice a variety of Hmong cultural arts and performances.

HYPU is also in need of funding to support organizational planning and sustainability efforts.
