Issue Background

Place-Based

The Alliance for Strong Families network of nonprofit human-serving organizations plays an active role in the development, support and implementation of policies and programs that are helping to build stronger communities and providing opportunities for advancement.

Until we, as a nation, recognize how the lack of equal access and opportunity far beyond an individual person’s control are being experienced, we will never achieve all that is possible through the greatness of our people. Recent research suggests that success later in life is tied closely to where one grows up, and the U.S. is far from a level playing field. Through our policy and advocacy efforts, we are coming together to affirm our commitment to comprehensive neighborhood revitalization programs that provide a path out of poverty.

Join us as we stand together to ensure every person in this great nation has the solid foundation of a safe, healthy, connected and caring neighborhood upon which to excel in their lives.
