Shaping Approaches to Equity and Health Across the Country

Alliance for Strong Families and Communities

The Alliance for Strong Families and Communities was established in 1911 as the National Association of Societies for Organizing Charity. Its original goals were to share information between charity organizations, raise standards of operations, and prevent poverty. In over 100 years of history, the organization has changed its focus and name several times in response to changing economic and social conditions. In 2015, it became the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities and has since prioritized building high-impact organizations across the United States that contribute to its vision of a healthier and more equitable future.

Today, the Alliance's membership includes direct service organizations, state associations, and other institutions such as foundations, universities and colleges, and for-profit organizations. Though diverse, these members are bound by a shared desire to help children, adults, and families achieve their full potential. They do so by providing and leading programs in education, counseling, workforce development, adoption and foster care, neighborhood revitalization, civic engagement, and advocacy. Additionally, the Alliance serves as a thought leader for the nonprofit sector. With robust online learning opportunities, including courses, webinars, and conferences, the Alliance seeks to drive best practices in the sector and promote organizational excellence.
