HAP would like to recognize and thank our donors for their financial contributions to the 2017-18 Fox Cities Hmong New Year held at Appleton East on December 23rd, 2017. Without your support this event could not have been possible. Thank you from all of us and Happy Holidays to all.
Thank you to our New Year Chair, Ger Vang and Co-Chair Chia Lee for their leadership in delivering another successful celebration on Saturday December 23. The New Year committees all worked very hard and put on a great event. Thank you to everyone who helped or assisted in planning, coordinating, and executing the many activities. Special “Thank You” to all of our guest speakers who came to support the Hmong community, in particular Senator Foung Hawj from Minnesota and our local community leaders.
Again thank you to everyone.
This project is a collaboration between the Hmong American Partnership Fox Valley, Inc , WUCMAA and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to collect data on the use of alcohol and other substances by the Hmong community here in the Fox Valley area. This is the first step in determining what assistance the Hmong community needs with regard to alcohol and substance use. We have data from the DOT on Hmong operating under the influence in the state of Wisconsin as well as data on alcohol and substance use related domestic incidents. This data suggests that we have nearly double the alcohol related incidents as that of the average person in the community as a whole. This suggests that, if we have professional services available to the Hmong community here in the Fox Valley area, we may be able to mitigate some of the alcohol and substance use related incidents. Hence, the first step in this project is to collect data on the use of alcohol and other controlled substances within the Hmong community here in the Fox Cities. Please help us in this important project by filling out this survey. It is completely anonymous.
