Be resilient. Be responsible. Stay safe.

Children’s Trust Fund Alliance is committed to helping all families and communities stay strong during this public health crisis.

We believe preventing child maltreatment is more than a family matter. Especially now.

Joint Guidance on CBCAP Funds

With the new CBCAP funds being distributed through the American Recovery Plan Act, the Alliance collaborated with the Center for the Study of Social Policy, Prevent Child Abuse America, National Family Support Network and EndCAN on a document about how to use these funds to strengthen families and communities.

Alliance Resiliency Project Supports Families

In response to the evolving impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Alliance partnered with Casey Family Programs to develop the Alliance Resiliency Project – a trusted and supportive resource to almost 400 parents who are members of the Birth Parent National Network (BPNN), the Birth Parent Advisory Committee (BPAC) and the Birth and Foster Parent Partnership (BFPP). Through the Alliance Resiliency Project, the Alliance was able to help parents identify and address short- and long-term concrete needs that supported their families’ ongoing well-being and safe, stable and nurturing environments for their children.

Commitment to Act Against Systemic Racism

As an organization working to help every child and youth in the United States grow up in strong, stable, nurturing families within thriving and prosperous communities, we reaffirm our commitment to racial justice and to becoming an anti-racist organization.

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
