Welcome to the Bridge
Haitian Bridge Alliance(HBA), also known as "The Bridge" is a coalition of Haitian non-profit organizations and community activists who have come together to serve the Haitian community in California and beyond.
We came together as a result of the Haitian immigrant crisis that hit San Diego. Our singular focus is to ensure the new immigrants' success as they navigate their new lives in the United States. While our current work is focused more on this crisis, our long-term vision is to expand the visibility and reach of the Haitian community in California and to assist wherever we are needed.more info
