Coalition Partners

The number one priority in Missouri must be making sure every mom and dad has what they need to raise healthy, happy children. It is critical to allow every family in Missouri to choose the childcare option that is best for them – including the ones who sometimes struggle to pay for it. Parents need the resources to support their children with stable, secure nurturing environments in their earliest years. Strong families are the building blocks of a strong society.

This will take the support of businesses, policymakers, community leaders, public safety, and faith associations to make the change needed. The Champion of Children Coalition partners are listed here.
