Allegheny Family Network (AFN) is the recipient of a three-year (September 30, 2018-September 29, 2021) federal grant, along with additional resources, to establish a statewide family support infrastructure and alliance that will improve the lives of families raising children and youth with mental health issues, many with complex needs and involvement in multiple systems. The proposed alliance, PA-Family Alliance for Children’s Services (PA-FACS), will work with existing PA family organizations, support emerging organizations with technical assistance, support families with leadership training and networking opportunities, support the state and county stakeholders with confident and competent family partners that can help plan and develop policies, and enhance the state and counties by bringing all the stakeholders together annually to learn together, celebrate successes, and establish new issues to address.

The PA-Family Alliance for Children’s Services (PA-FACS) Project Director is a new position and will be a key member of the Allegheny Family Network’s leadership team. The applicant can be from anywhere across PA but must live in PA. The successful applicant will be responsible for the development, implementation, and oversight of all aspects of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) grant and other funds directed to establish PA-FACS. This unique person will work directly with the leadership of existing PA family organizations, with county administrators and county level family leaders and advocates that are planning to develop family support services, and with Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) leadership.
