With so many people looking for a new path to prosperity in the Upstate, the importance of the mission of the Hispanic Alliance has never been greater. The connection we facilitate between individuals & service providers makes a difference for so many of our neighbors in Greenville County and beyond.
We receive messages daily from someone seeking employment, medical care, or simply looking to make connections amidst isolation.
We work with our community partners, creating access to opportunities leading to quality of life but also to embrace the Hispanic population as contributors to a thriving local economy.
HA has made great headway in its first decade but there is still more work to be done.
The Hispanic community in SC still lags behind in education, economic, & health outcomes. The inextricable relationship among poverty, race, education, wealth and health are evidenced by recent data at the local level.

The Hispanic Alliance serves as a community voice driving both strategies and activities to face these disparities in Greenville and throughout South Carolina.
While never charging for services provided, HA provides innovative programs like the Student DREAMers Alliance, Citizenship Workshop, and our Entrepreneurial Workshop to support individuals. We build inclusive partnerships with agencies, local governments, and global corporations to focus on systemic change, creating avenues for opportunity & prosperity for our Hispanic neighbors.
We help our partner agencies serve the local Hispanic population in a culturally, linguistically and socially appropriate way. The Hispanic Alliance is a nonpartisan organization that faithfully advocates for diversity, equity, acceptance, understanding, and quality of life for all South Carolinians.
