Canal Alliance

2020 YBCA 100 Honoree

Canal Alliance is a nonprofit champion of immigrants who are challenged by a lack of resources and an unfamiliar environment. We believe that everyone has the right to achieve their dreams. Every day, we educate, empower, support, and partner with motivated immigrants and their families to best meet their unique needs—putting food on the table, becoming U.S. citizens, learning English, graduating from college, and gaining career-path employment. Because when we support immigrants, Marin becomes a place where everyone can live, learn, work, and succeed.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Canal Alliance has transitioned quickly to offer all core programs remotely and launched new services to address the devastating and disproportionate health and financial impacts that the pandemic is having on the Latino immigrant community. Canal Alliance leads efforts to ensure an equitable and inclusive recovery that results in more resilient families, workers, businesses, and communities.
