During its first eight years of operation, from 2000- 2008, Alianza carried out work in four major areas: Community Education & Development; Policy; Research; and Training & Technical Assistance. Since 2009, after losing funding, Alianza has focused its efforts on Training & Technical Assistance and Community Education, with some limited work in the area of Public Policy.
As part of its training and technical assistance services, Alianza organizes national conferences and other training forums that help service providers and advocates who work with Latinas/os enhance their knowledge and skills; provides technical assistance; develops and distributes culturally and linguistically competent resource materials, and makes referrals to other agencies and services when necessary. It also maintains an online Resource Center.
Over the years, Alianza board and staff have also served as faculty for trainings and conferences sponsored by other national DV organizations, national Latino-led agencies, and state-wide organizations. They have also travelled internationally to provide trainings in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Nicaragua and Puerto Rico. The trainings in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua were sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Embassies for the respective countries.

Alianza works to raise awareness about the devastating effect of domestic violence on Latino families and communities and provides information about existing laws, options, resources, and services. It does this through the placement of news articles, radio and television PSAs, radio and TV talk shows, and the hosting of community events.
