People who are struggling to find jobs and careers in the South Florida can turn to Hispanic Unity of Florida for some help. The organization is based in Hollywood.

Josie Bacallao, president of Hispanic Unity has helped many people get back on their feet and find work. She helped one woman who had lost her job and was facing becoming homeless find a place to live and a job. The woman is now going to school.

“We are guiding people to get back on their feet and find great jobs, said Bacallao. “We bundle all our services together. Our Center for Working Families is an approach to helping lower income families reach financial stability and move ahead. We show families how to increase their earnings and income, reduce their financial transaction costs and build wealth for themselves and their families,” said Bacallao.

Hispanic Unity of Florida recently received a grant of more than $1 million from the Jim Moran Foundation and a $555,000 grant from the United Way of Broward County. Both grants are for three years and will go toward funding the Center for Working Families.

“We will continue building our program and helping people,” said Bacallao.
