project work

Our project work focuses on partnering with early adopters and innovators in the field of child welfare to dramatically improve outcomes for youth and families, and to create meaningful, sustainable change. We guide and support courageous child welfare leaders on the forefront of systems change who are building a movement to preserve the family connections needed for lifelong success.

We developed a guide that outlines five phases for designing and implementing primary prevention in a system, Building Your UnSystem: The Phases of Change to Primary Prevention. These phases have been distilled through the existing literature on workforce resilience and systems change, and tap into Alia’s years of experience supporting child welfare agencies across the country who are operationalizing them in practice.
