Alia Mission & Vision

Alia is a Minnesota-based national nonprofit that supports and convenes innovators in public and private child welfare agencies to transform the child welfare system. We have set out to obsolete child welfare as we know it today by creating and supporting new approaches and environments where youth and their caregivers can thrive.


Partner with the people in systems trusted with the wellbeing of children and families to inspire and drive transformative change.


Families are upheld as the foundation of lifelong wellbeing for children.


  • Fearless Innovation

    We take strategic risks to build a better way.

  • Audacious Optimism

    We hold a bold belief in the human capacity to transform and heal.

  • Courageous Partnerships

    We share knowledge and form deep, trusting collaborations believing that everyone has a part of the solution to share and everyone is a change-maker.

  • A Sense of Urgency

    We understand how brief childhood is and what is at stake for our youth.

  • Relentless Pursuit of Evidence

    We are committed to learning from each other and our youth, and adjusting practices; when we know better, we do better.
