Canal Alliance

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 - from putting food on the table, to becoming US citizens, to learning English, and graduating from college. Canal Alliance has been the leading service provider and community advocate for Marin's extremely low-income Latino immigrant community for 37 years. Each year, we collaborate with 40 agencies and engage 500 volunteers to serve more than 4,000 individuals. In June 2017, Canal Alliance was recognized at the inaugural California Nonprofits Day celebration as a California Nonprofit of the Year.
