"It is clear and evident to me that our current system is failing children, families, and communities and changing it requires innovation and new thinking. I am grateful for what the Alia Team brings as I lead the complex transformation of our system to one that is responsive, caring, compassionate, and focused on preserving and strengthening families. My work with Alia has brought me new energy, perspective, and focus as Director of a Human Services Department."

- Diane Cable, Director of Human Services

"My work with Alia has brought me new energy, perspective, and focus as Director of a Human Services Department."

"Go! Even though you may already have good or even great practices at your agency you are bound to have enough to take away from a Summit to take your practices to another level."

"Alia Staff were amazingly accommodating throughout our time together."

"The hospitality was amazing.

I hope my county supports me in attending additional summits. I have enjoyed everything and am thankful for the opportunity to learn and abolish foster care."
