2020 Standing with Children Awards Event

Our world has turned upside down in the last month due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Feelings of isolation, fear of the unknown and the distress of being out of control are all normal reactions to this abnormal situation.

This unusual time that we are living in now is quite similar to what children experience every day when they are the victims of child abuse and neglect. When child abuse occurs, the abuser causes fear by threats or coercion, resulting in the child feeling isolated from trusted adults and a loss of power and control over their lives.

During times of extreme stress, financial hardships and uncertainty, the risk to children for experiencing child abuse and neglect is high. Our work to end child abuse and provide training and support to professionals providing direct services to child victims is even more important than ever. We are all #Essential4Kids.

Missouri KidsFirst is canceling the in-person Standing with Children Awards Luncheon scheduled for April 27, 2020. Instead, Missouri KidsFirst will be hosting a virtual event at the same time.
