Founded in 1996, HOY en Delaware is the largest and longest serving Hispanic publication in the “First State”, covering and distributing all over the 3 counties: New Castle, Kent and Sussex Counties. Plus several border towns in Maryland (Salisbury, Cambridge, Easton and Marydel) and Pennsylvania (Kennett Square).
HOY en Delaware reflects the hopes, aspirations and challenges facing a community comprised of immigrants from Mexico, Guatemala, Caribe, Central America and other nations in Delaware’s Latino diaspora.
It goes much farther than merely reporting on events, it bridges the gap between the Anglo and Latino communities, it informs the Latino community about health events, changes to immigration laws, scholarship opportunities and ways to improve the financial well being of our community, including the access to housing.
HOY en Delaware aims at being a bridge of understanding among all inhabitants in the state.
The first issue was printed in June 1996.

In recognition of the economic power of multicultural businesses, www.diversitybusiness.com, the nations’ leading multicultural internet site, named HOY en Delaware LLC as one of the ‘Top 50 diversity-owned businesses in the state of Delaware (Div50).’ (April 7, 2007).
The Div50 was the 7th annual listing of the Delaware’s top 50 diversity-owned businesses. The companies listed on the Div50 represent the state’s top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a diversity-owned business is small or insignificant. Div50 members are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with diversity owned companies.
The Impact of Diversity Business Affected by recent economic and demographic trends and changes, Fortune 1000 corporations throughout the country have recognized that buying products and services from diversity owned companies positively impacts their business.
Diversity-owned businesses contribute over $1.4 trillion in sales to the U.S. economy.
‘Diversity businesses and consumers are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with,’ said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International. ‘These are the new leaders in American business.’
Gloria Bohan, CEO of Omega World Travel in Fairfax, Virginia commented ‘This group represents the entrepreneurial spirit that drives our economy and even more. It offers insights into a vastness of cultures and an exchange of ideas that are so valuable in helping me to understand how to reach the needs of today’s consumers.’
The Div50 is a classification that represents the top 50 diversity-owned (Women, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Indian and other minority groups) businesses in Delaware, in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. Large organizational buyers throughout the country that do business with multicultural and women-owned businesses use the list.
