The mission of Canal Alliance is to help low-income, Spanish-speaking immigrants acquire the tools they need to thrive. We accomplish this through our wraparound strategy which is designed to help people overcome barriers to the acquisition of the skills to thrive. This process involves recognizing the diverse skills immigrants already possess, resolving immediate needs or problems, identifying opportunities for growth, and monitoring their progress toward goals. Canal Alliance believes that when extremely low-income immigrants acquire the right skills and abilities they can overcome poverty and build a pathway to success as new Americans.
