The Alliance for Children and Families is committed to providing its members with best-practice programs they can easily replicate within their own organizations and communities.
This commitment stems from an understanding of the ideological shift that’s afoot in the nonprofit human service sector. Governments and funders are indicating they expect organizations to embrace the concept of combining traditional human services with efforts that help low-income families establish economic self-sufficiency.
The Alliance has been at the forefront in disseminating programs that respond to this ever-increasing expectation. Each is designed to provide Alliance members with a franchise-like model that is easy to implement and sustain.
The Alliance does the upfront work so that members aren’t creating a program from scratch; provides training, documentation, and manuals; and offers assistance throughout implementation and operation.
Currently one replicable program is available to members:
- Ways to Work. Helps working poor families by providing both financial literacy training and small, short-term, low-interest auto loans to individuals with challenging credit histories.
