State Children’s Trust and Prevention Funds
Working together to prevent child abuse and neglect
The Alliance is the national membership organization for state children’s trust and prevention funds. Together we have created a strong national network that works to strengthen families, promote child well-being, build healthy communities and effective systems to prevent child abuse and neglect.
Together we deliver results
State children’s trust and prevention funds:
- Provide positive changes in systems, policies and practices in their states to promote well-being for children, families and communities.
- Hold vital and unique roles in their states as funders, collaborators, catalysts, implementers, overseers and evaluators of the largest collective body of child abuse prevention work in the country.
- Invest $200 million each year in community-based and statewide prevention and family strengthening strategies and programs.
- Provides foundational support to a dynamic national network of children’s trust and prevention funds.
- Creates trainings, tools, peer-networking opportunities and other resources for state children’s trust and prevention funds to use.
- Leverages state children’s trust and prevention funds local contributions to create a national knowledge base of workable prevention programs.
