The Chicano Veterans Organization provides resources and referrals for veterans and their family members for current and future needs.  Family members are defined as spouses, significant others, biological or step children of alive and deceased veterans.  Family members also include widows and former spouses, if applicable.  Extended family members include all paternal and maternal linkage of both parents.  These services include outreach, education, and a successful emotional transition from the battlefield utilizing their unique successful “Chicano” post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) cultural proficiency techniques and experiences for any veteran or family member after their active military service is completed.

Feel free to register yourself by completing a survey, or on behalf of  someone else, who served honorably in one our U.S. Military Services listed (deceased is okay)

According to the Hispanic Population of U.S.Census Bureau. as of May 2008, confirmed over:45.5 million Hispanics, 15.1% of total population of 299 million.  Between 2000 and 2006:  Hispanics accounted for one-half of the nations growth.

Hispanic growth rate (24.3%) was more than three times the growth rate of the total population (6.1%).  Further data confirms that will continue to grow at twice the rate of non-Hispanics.  Hispanics are also the youngest ethnic group at 26.6 years.  The Bureau estimates by 2030, one in four children will be Hispanic.

The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) has always actively promoted a full count of every Latino in the decennial 2010 Census.  Now that Latinos are the nation’s second largest population group, it is even more critical that the Census Bureau collects reliable data about our community.  NALEO will work closely with the Bureau to develop practices and programs that produce the most accurate information possible about the Latino population.
