Alaska Impact Alliance

The AIA is a working group of child welfare stakeholders. We are Tribal, public, and private sector innovators and agency leaders building a statewide community-based prevention network that reduces the need for child protective services interventions.

Reimagining child welfare in Alaska

Community Engagement Team

These AIA members are local advocates with lived experience and a listening ear. They do outreach within a community or neighborhood to understand what community services would strengthen families and keep children safe. They also research similar communities and provide information on best practices. This team represents the community to the AIA and the AIA to the community. They inform and assist in developing culturally competent programming. They work with families and local partners to build strong relationships and collaborations.

Sustainable Financing Team

These AIA members work to create sustainable funding for AIA affiliated programs and agencies. They work to design budgets and creative financing strategies that leverage community investment along with sustainable federal, state, local, and private funding so that successful prevention programs withstand economic and administration changes.

Program Operations Team

These AIA members work alongside local agencies implementing prevention programs. They assist in business operations, program logistics, and policy.

Practitioner Training and Support Team

These AIA members ensure that the needed training is available and provided to clinicians and prevention practitioners. They advocate for and collaborate on the increased usage of culturally relevant services, promising practices, and evidence-based models in prevention.

Legislation and Policy Team

These AIA members work to build relationships with legislators and government administrators. They advocate for and advise decision-makers on policies and legislation that promotes best practices in child welfare.

Data and Evaluation Team

These AIA members assist in determining standards and outcomes measurements of AIA prevention projects. They gather, evaluate, and report on programs so that the AIA can make data-driven decisions.
