Some services are available in Spanish for those Latinos who are LEP (Low English Proficiency). Some Latinos speak English well enough to benefit from services provided in English. Except for Federal mandated programs which are restricted by income to permanent legal residents and US citizens and require a social security number, services are available to any one.

The membership of ALPES is composed of faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, academic institutions, hospitals, health organizations, local government entities, and community representatives (individuals interested in developing the ALPES goals and mission).
