ALIGN is a network of child and family service agencies, all committed to improving the quality of life for Alberta’s most vulnerable children and families. ALIGN promotes research and continuing learning for over 10,000 agency staff across the province while also ensuring policy-makers at all levels of government understand the issues facing Alberta’s children and families. Our mission is to speak with one voice so children, families and communities thrive. What a busy year it’s been! ALIGN maintained its commitment to our members through many continuing and new initiatives with a focus on Professional Development, Advocacy with Government, Promotion of Research Excellence and Healthy Workforce Initiatives.
