Allies with Families began as a project of the Utah Parent Center, in 1991, with a small grant from the Division of Mental Health and the State Office of Education, to provide information and support to families of children with mental health needs. Allies was awarded a Statewide Family Network Grant in 1993, allowing an expanded focus to include system change work. In 1998, Allies separated from the Utah Parent Center and obtained 501(c)(3) status.

As a family controlled non-profit organization, Allies maintains a board of directors with at least 51% of its members as parents of a child (or children) with mental health needs (under the age of 18, or up to 26 and receiving transitional assistance from child to adult services). In hiring, Allies gives preference to family members of children with mental health needs.
