We're a Minnesota based national nonprofit "do-tank." Founded in research and family voice, we support innovative leaders and systems related to child welfare.
We redesign child welfare by equipping leaders in agencies with the support they need for systems change. We help communities ask the right questions and solve the right problems.
Our current practices in child welfare do not yet align with what we know about the needs of children and families. We know we can do better.
HeartShare St. Vincent's Services, a NY nonprofit, decided in 2017 that they were no longer willing to watch youth age out of the child welfare system with no legal connection or person who claims them. By the end of three-year permanency partnership work with Alia, 67% of the youth in the program found or made significant advancements toward permanence.
