Parents Repond to Federal Survey

The Alliance collected more than 70 responses from parents to a Request for Information (RFI) on Methods and Leading Practices for Advancing Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through Government. The RFI was issued by the Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President.

The Alliance reached out to its parent networks – Alliance National Parent Partnership Council, Birth Parent National Network, the Birth and Foster Parent Partnership and the Birth Parent Advisory Committee. The parents responses were compiled in What Parents Say About…Advancing Equity and Support for Underserved Communities. The publication joins the Alliance’s popular What Parents Say About… series that includes perspectives from parents with life experiences in using services to strengthen their families.

Help Us Make the Case for Continued Support

The pandemic is creating health and economic hardships for businesses, communities and families. At a time when there is such critical need at every turn, we need to make the case for additional support for children and families dealing with the challenges of COVID-19. Collecting and sharing the stories of families during the pandemic is one way to put a face on these real and everyday challenges to help systems leaders and policymakers prioritize the needs of families.

We have created a short questionnaire to give families a way to share your stories with the media. The questionnaire is simple and submission will be followed up by a contact from the Alliance. Stories are powerful – so if you have a story to share or know of a family that you work with that might be willing to share their story, please complete the questionnaire HERE or share this link with others: https://tinyurl.com/y6cel9g2
