OUR VISION IS FOR EVERY CHILD TO BE SAFE FROM ABUSE.

Empowering adults to protect children.

SAFE-CARE

Missouri KidsFirst manages the SAFE-CARE (Sexual Assault Forensic Examination-Child Abuse Resource and Education) network. SAFE-CARE is Missouri’s medical response to child abuse.

PREVENTION

Although we would like to prevent child abuse and neglect from ever occurring, we believe that adults must also be educated and empowered to recognize and react responsibly to child abuse.

POLICY

Missouri KidsFirst advocates in the Missouri General Assembly for policies and statewide funding for programs that protect and prioritize the safety and well-being of children.

MANDATED REPORTER TRAINING

Missouri KidsFirst manages Missouri’s Child Abuse and Neglect, Mandated Reporter Training (free and online). We also provide in person mandated training to organizations for a fee.

Missouri KidsFirst and the Missouri Network of Child Advocacy Centers extends our deepest sympathies to the family, friends and colleagues of Kathy Carr. Kathy was the Director of the Children's Advocacy Center of East Central Missouri and cared deeply about the CAC team and local MDTs. Kathy was a bright light, always kind, compassionate and humble.

In 2018, Missouri removed the statute of limitations for prosecuting criminal cases of child sexual abuse. This year, lawmakers could do the same for civil lawsuits. #moleg https://t.co/HyfOALCSoZ via @stltoday
