Collaborating across Cultures to advance Hispanic communities in South Carolina.

The Hispanic Alliance convenes the largest collaborative network working to advance Hispanic communities in the Upstate. Created from and for collaboration, our organization is consistently building a bridge of communication and understanding between Hispanics & the broader community.

With the mission of fostering collaboration and connectivity among people, resources, and cultures to build thriving communities, the Hispanic Alliance envisions a vibrant and inclusive community where everyone has access to opportunities for success and prosperity.

Our organization is nonpartisan and is a faithful advocate for diversity, equality, acceptance, and understanding. Our network advocates particularly for those who have left their countries behind – as well as their families, friends, and culture – to pursue better opportunities for their children, just like previous generations did.

Providing Resources for Communities in South Carolina

Everyone deserves equal access
to quality of life.

The Hispanic Alliance connects individuals to quality resource providers in the Upstate and communities across South Carolina. With nearly 18% of the population having a Hispanic heritage, we are paving a path to equality.

Celebrating Diversity of Culture

Diversity of thought makes us stronger.

We celebrate the myriad of cultures within Spanish-speaking countries.  We elevate the contributions of Hispanic and Latin Americans to our quality of life. 

Building a Brighter Future for us all

We invest in a shared future of inclusion.

We build trust with Hispanic communities by speaking their languages, promoting their cultures, and understanding and addressing their needs. We help our partner agencies serve the local Hispanic population in a culturally, linguistically, and socially appropriate way.
