The Alliance National Parent Partnership Council is an advisory group to the Alliance and Children’s Trust Funds. Their work aligns with the Alliance’s strategic plan and priorities. They work to raise awareness about the Alliance and its mission and to strengthen all parents and communities from a prevention point of view.

The Alliance and the Council is committed to serving as a national model for effectively partnering with parents and expanding and integrating the powerful role of parent leaders in state children’s trust and prevention funds and community-based programs.

The Alliance created the ANPPC in 2007 and has continued to support its continued growth and development. Members of the ANPPC have always been parent leaders who are familiar with the work of their states’ CTFs and who have experience and expertise that will be helpful on the national level.

In the years since the creation of the ANPPC there has been significant learning about what it means to partner with parents. Members of the Council are actively involved with the Alliance Committee structure and the co-chairs of the Council serve a term on the Alliance Board. Parents are an integral part of Alliance strategic planning, creating and refining resources and many other aspects of the work.
