Alliance Corporate Structure & Families International
The Alliance for Children and Families is the sole incorporator of Families International (FI), a nonprofit holding company based in Milwaukee.
FI serves as the parent organization for three nonprofit organizations—the Alliance for Children and Families, United Neighborhood Centers of America (UNCA), and Ways to Work—and one for-profit company, FEI Behavioral Health.
FI manages the financial, human resources, administrative, and information systems capacities for each company, allowing them to benefit from the cost-savings that result from pooling resources at the holding company level.
The Alliance shares office space in its Milwaukee headquarters with FI and the three other FI companies. The office also houses the American Association of Children’s Residential Centers, which is managed under a partnership agreement with the Alliance.
The Alliance's president and CEO helps create and maintain an environment that promotes the sharing of ideas, information, and resources among all FI organizations by also serving as CEO for FI, UNCA, and Ways to Work.
The Alliance Board of Directors appoints more than half the members of the FI Board of Directors.
