The Oregon Alliance is a dedicated champion and established voice in advocating for the safety, health, and well-being of children, youth, families, and communities across Oregon. We are a diverse group of organizations serving Oregon’s kids and their families at home, in school, in residential settings, and within the community. We join with dedicated community leaders, our partners in government, allied fields, and those we serve to deliver effective policies, best practices, and resources. We work to help all kids live better lives and for families and communities to thrive in every corner of Oregon. ​



The Oregon Alliance is a non-profit dedicated to championing and advocating for the health and well-being of children, families and communities across Oregon. We are an association whose members work in partnership to recognize and respond to the complexities of behavioral health, intellectual and developmental disabilities, emotional challenges, and trauma. Alliance members provide an array of critical services for children, youth, and families including behavioral and mental health services, homeless youth services, therapeutic residential care, and prevention services, along with foster care, adoption, family reunification, education, and substance use treatment.

We connect with community thought leaders, our partners in government, allied fields, and the private sector to bring together the most effective policies, best practices, and resources to help kids live healthier lives and for families and communities to thrive in every corner of state. As importantly, we support Oregonians in becoming their own best advocates.


At the Oregon Alliance, diversity, equity and inclusion are at the core of who we are. As a collaboration of member organizations, we work across all levels in member agencies and with community partners. Our goal is to promote and advocate for system change, creating principles of respect, inclusion, and access to equitable services for our children, youth, families, and the communities we serve.

We acknowledge the systems we work in have implicit and explicit bias for children and families from communities of Black, Brown, Indigenous, LGBTQI+, and other marginalized people. We work to support them and lead from a framework of healing, engagement, and resiliency for all our children, families, and communities across our state.

Our aim is to promote a system of care that is fair and equitable for all and reverses the many decades of disproportionality that has impacted our communities in negative ways.


The Oregon Child & Family Center for Excellence strives to improve programs, services and service delivery for children, youth, and families, contributing to their well-being and success. We envision an Oregon where every child, youth, and family is valued and thrives in their home, school, community and has access to supports if they need them.
