About Us

Since its formation in 2013, Allies for Children has been working to promote the best interests of children in Allegheny County. Building off of the foundations laid by those that came before us, including Child Watch of Pittsburgh, Allies for Children has spent nearly a decade working with our partners, public servants, and the people of Allegheny County to promote policies supporting the young people of our region. This includes working to enroll families in health insurance through Healthy Together in 2014, implementing a new fair funding formula in 2015, spearheading the 2018 “Our Kids, Our Commitment” ballot initiative, delivering more than 100,000 meals during the pandemic, and helping to shape the Allegheny County Department of Children’s Initiatives. Learn more about our history.
