2019 Legislative Priority — Improving Outcomes for Children

The Kansas City Child Abuse Roundtable Coalition’s legislative agenda supports policies and budgets that protect and assist Missouri’s abused and neglected children and that prevent child abuse and neglect. The Coalition’s legislative priorities for the 2019 Session of the Missouri General Assembly are as follows:

  1. Support state and/or federal legislation to all the Children's Division to share information with other Child Protective Services agencies across state lines to ensure better decisions for children and families.
  2. Advocate for policies that support the implementation of the Family First Prevention Service Act which invests dollars in proven prevention services including, but not limited to, the safe families model, kinship model, intensive in-home services, family preservation and home visitation.
We encourage your consideration and endorsement!
