In 2020, AJL brought together families and youth, professionals working in human services and education, and AJL Board and staff members to select 20 nonprofit organizations serving families and youth to each receive a $20,000 general operating support grant. The final conversation revolved around the question: "What needs to change to better serve our families and youth?" AJL's grant partners asked us to pass their important responses and messages on to the field of philanthropy, so as promised, please enjoy their gift here and carry it with you into 2021.
