Alliance Membership

Membership in the Alliance of Community Service Providers:

There are two types of members of the Alliance of Community Service Providers: (1) Members– Those agencies, which provide direct service to people. And, (2) Associate Members– Enterprises, which offer products and services that augment the supports of the Members. Dues Members for 2022-2023 are set on a sliding scale based on their annual revenues. Revenue sources include: ODP PROMISE payments related to the Philadelphia individuals or Philadelphia locations for the services listed above, Philadelphia County contract dollars from IDS, OAS, & OMH; BHSI payments, and CBH reimbursements for public clients. No other funding streams apply to the Alliance Annual Dues calculation.
