Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
Taking substantial steps to maintain and increase its success in an ever-changing operating environment, the 102-year-old Alliance for Children and Families has completed an historic restructuring that is meant to fully leverage its member network around achieving true systemic change for families and communities.
Employing a visionary approach, the Alliance recognized that to realize its mission of a healthy society and strong communities for all children, adults, and families—while also maintaining its responsibility for growth and financial success—it must move above and beyond serving its member network to creating a more powerful voice for the human-serving sector and the people it serves.
Therefore, the boards of directors and members have approved the following changes:
“This restructuring reflects the Alliance’s intention to extend its purpose beyond member services and to leverage its many strengths to have a more robust and positive influence on society. We are now a network-building entity, a social enterprise, a community development financial institution, and a strong, united network of 500 organizations, representing millions of voices, ready for mobilization that will be leveraged to create systemic change for America’s children, families, and communities,” said Alliance President and CEO Susan Dreyfus.
In addition to implementing these significant changes, the Alliance Board of Directors will begin to study in 2014 the benefits of a new organizational name that better reflects its unique vision and purpose.
The Alliance for Children and Families is a nonprofit, national organization dedicated to achieving a vision of a healthy society and strong communities for all children, adults, and families. The Alliance works for transformational change by representing and supporting its network of hundreds of nonprofit human serving organizations across North America as they translate knowledge into best practices that improve their communities. Working with and through its member network on networking, leadership, and advocacy, the Alliance strives to achieve high impact by reducing the number of people living in poverty; increasing the number of people with opportunities to live healthy lives; and increasing the number of people with access to educational and employment success.
