"What happens to us humans in our early lives, whether or not we feel safe and loved, shapes every single relationship we will have and the trajectory of our lives.”
– Amelia Franck Meyer, Founder and CEO of Alia
CHANGE IS NEEDED
Alia's mission is to inspire and drive transformative change for the people and systems entrusted with the welfare and care of children.
In the US alone, 670,000 children spend time in foster care each year and approximately half of them are placed in the care of strangers. We believe many children could be living with someone they already know and love, or to whom they are related, preventing incalculable future harm and community resources. Alia’s innovative work with other changemakers is changing the story for future generations. Read more about Alia's story and mission.

DO WHAT LOVE WOULD DO
What would be good enough for a child you loved? These stories demonstrate what we all already know to be true: What matters most in life is not what we have, but rather who we share it with.
Every child deserves an uninterrupted sense of love, connection, and belonging, and we are working with leaders across the country to help transform work in their systems so there is support families to be able to safely care for their own.
New Alia Innovation Hub!
There is in tandem a growing demand for changemakers and we are expanding in response. At the new Alia Innovation Hub at 1000 University Ave W. in Saint Paul, Minnesota we will regularly convene those who are redesigning the system so that children can stay safely at home with their own families.
Support Alia today, and invite your friends and family to do the same, as you help us Move the Movement!
With professional love & gratitude,
