The California Alliance of Child and Family Services (Alliance) is a public policy, advocacy and training organization with nearly 150 nonprofit community-based organizations that provide a broad array of services to children, youth and families throughout California.

The focus of their presentation, with Executive Director Chris Stoner-Mertz, and Senior Policy Director Adrienne Shilton, was about work they are doing to support children, youth, and families, including school-based mental health, suicide prevention, and foster youth with mental health needs; their Catalyst Center and ACES aware grants; and their partnership with the State Department of Social Services for a provider helpline to help with COVID-19-related issues.
