In an effort to create an organization that encompasses all Hispanic Heritage individuals the name Alliance of Chicanos, Hispanics and Latin Americans was chosen.

 

Our focus is to assist migrant and immigrant families facing educational, health, and enrichment challenges.

Through strategic partnerships, dedicated volunteers, and recent staff members we offer: culturally appropriate support,  math tutoring, bike culture promotion, health and wellbeing support, economic development and enrichment activities.
