We Are Families as Allies

Families As Allies is the only family-run statewide organization for parents and caregivers of children with mental health challenges. Family-run organizations support families and allow families to work together to improve systems and services. 

The majority of our staff and board members are parents, grandparents and caregivers who have learned to navigate the system for our children and work for change whenever and wherever it is needed.  We believe that every child should have the opportunity to thrive at home, in school and in the community and that parents and caregivers have expertise and insight into what will most help their children.  We also believe that children and families should receive the support and services they need to make their hopes and dreams for their children a reality.
