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.


We inspire and drive transformative change for the people and systems entrusted with the welfare and wellbeing of children.


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