Letter from the Executive Director

Executive Director

Hola,

My name is Marisol Amaya-Aluigi, as Executive Director at La Alianza Hispana, I’d like to personally welcome you to our website.

La Alianza Hispana is a community based nonprofit serving the Boston Latino community as well as all residents in the surrounding neighborhoods of Dorchester, Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Hyde Park, and Mattapan. We provide a vital set of educational, health, and workforce training services enabling individuals and families to realize their personal, educational, and economic needs and goals.

Founded over 40 years ago, La Alianza Hispana has already assisted tens of thousands of Boston area families, yet there is still much work to be done: today, we are experiencing the most severe economic crisis in generations, and the impact to our communities is already apparent.  The most vulnerable are often at the greatest risk. Demand for our public health services and workforce development and education programs will multiply in the coming months.

In the face of this adversity, we have prepared a clear and focused approach to meeting the needs of our communities. Our newly-designed web site provides a wealth of information about our services and programs and how to access them.

We look forward to hearing from you, and to working with you.  Together, we will succeed. ¡Si se puede!

Marisol Amaya-Aluigi
Executive Director
