Alianza Hispanoamericana NFP, Inc. (Alianza) was founded in 2012 as a way to assist people in applying for immigration benefits. A decision was made for the organization to become 501(c)(3) non-profit organization soon after. It took a few years but, Alianza officially earn its non-profit status on April of 2015. The founders learned for the organization to reach its full potential and properly assist the community members they would have to become a Department of Justice (DOJ) Accredited Agency. It took a few years, but on March of 2018 the organization obtain it DOJ Accreditation. The accreditation states that the organization and its staff are trained to provide up to date information on immigration. We assist in any way possible since the office has become a hub for people in need.
