Camino Alliance was established to address the immigration crisis that exists throughout the Americas by directly supporting grassroots ministry partners in Mexico, Central America and South America where families are often forced to flee their cities and home nations to escape poverty and violence.
We serve as a bridge, connecting grassroots ministry partners in Latin America with financial resources from the United States. This support enables our partners to help families stay and build sustainable lives in their own communities, effectively addressing the underlying issues of urban poverty and violence.
Because everyone deserves
a safe and secure future
The mission of Camino Alliance is to connect individuals, churches, corporations and foundations to support grassroots ministries in Latin America that are working with their communities to address the spiritual, physical, economic and social factors that force children and families to flee their countries to escape extreme poverty and violence.
“Let’s join together to address the root-causes of migration so that children and families can experience the kind of life we desire for our families in their home countries.”
