Hispanic Outreach of Goodhue County (HOGC) was established through Catholic Charities in 2006 as a response to the growing Hispanic population in the area. In 2013 it became an independent nonprofit. Its mission is to serve Hispanics through support services, advocacy, organizing and education to support their integration into the community while preserving their culture. There is no other organization like HOGC in the Goodhue area.
Based on the popularity of a recent photo exhibition HOGC organized, it will plan and host two community-building events, including a community forum to explore how all members of the Goodhue community can work together to create a more inclusive, welcoming, and equitable place to live.
