Missouri KidsFirst believes that child abuse and neglect are serious public health problems that impact the health and well-being of Missouri’s children. We believe preventing child abuse and neglect requires communities to work together to create safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments for Missouri’s children.

Missouri KidsFirst works to prevent child abuse and neglect through:

  • Advocating for state and federal policies that protect the safety and well-being of children and families.
  • Providing leadership and expertise on statewide child abuse and neglect legislative committees.
  • Providing community and professional training to empower adults to prevent, identify and react responsibly to child abuse and neglect.

Missouri KidsFirst raises awareness and empowers adults to prevent child abuse and neglect by using culturally sensitive, evidence-based programs to create healthier childhoods for Missouri’s children.
