The Hispanic Affairs Project (HAP) is a BIA Accredited nonprofit organization serving the immigrant population in several Western Colorado communities. Legal Services primarily include legal consultations, DACA initial/renewal applications, citizenship, residency renewal, and limited family-based petitions. HAP also makes referrals to reputable immigration attorneys for cases involving criminal history or complicated immigration history. HAP's Immigration Legal Assistance Program complements its ongoing work in support of immigrant and refugee integration. HAP envisions Western Colorado communities where cultural diversity is valued and immigrants have opportunities to contribute as integral members through active civic participation.
