A recent report released by Austin Community Foundation reveals what life is really like for some Latino families in Central Texas:

The poverty rate for Hispanics is three times the poverty rate for whites in Travis County.
Only 25% of low-income Hispanic children enter school kindergarten-ready.
Latinos are disproportionately uninsured.

These facts are especially concerning in light of the fact that Hispanics will constitute the majority of our population by 2050. Investment in the economic security and advancement of Hispanic Central Texas is an essential priority when considering the future of our region.
