Alliance Human Services

Alliance Human Services, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization providing foster care in California, Ohio, Rhode Island and Virginia. These programs work with governmental agencies to provide services to at-risk youth. Programs include therapeutic and specialized foster care, some traditional foster care, adoption services, services to medically fragile children, juvenile justice programs, and Medicaid mental health therapy and case management. On an average daily basis there are approximately 400 children being served nationally under the Alliance programs.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality services to children and to expand those operations to assure a financially sound and viable organization. We also look to continually monitor the human services arena to determine what services are not currently being met and to add programs that fit into the mission of the organization.

Alliance Human Services, Inc. provides foster care services to children and youth who have emotional or behavioral disorders, intellectual and developmental disabilities, are medically fragile, or are in the juvenile justice system. Often, the children we serve have been served unsuccessfully in homes in other agencies, or come from more restrictive settings, such as residential schools and group homes.

In order to support children and youth with significant challenges we recruit, train, and provide on-going counseling and case coordination to talented and caring adults who serve as foster parents. Our foster parents provide homes that are safe, and supportive. We have approximately 500 approved foster homes.

We aggressively recruit foster parents from a diverse population. We focus on carefully assessing the strengths and needs of our children and making excellent matches with skilled foster parents. Our foster parents are experienced and compassionate. We are able to support their efforts by ensuring that the children and youth are receiving all other services they need for their success, such as appropriate educational supports, personal or group counseling or therapy, and other case coordination services. In addition, we assist foster parents in obtaining respite so that they can be refreshed while the children are safe and having their needs met.

We have developed and implemented systems for assessing quality of care. We regularly collect outcome data to evaluate our effectiveness and to help us make program improvements. We dedicate ourselves to the goals of safety, stability and permanency for all children in our care and measure our efforts and success with achieving these goals.
