In Missouri there is a unique partnership between local citizens, business leaders and government that was born out of the concern to help improve the lives of Missouri’s children and families, it’s called FACT- Family and Community Trust.
FACT is a non-profit corporation that assists 20 well-respected community partnerships across the state. Each partnership works within their community to identify and develop solutions to overcome challenges such as…. homelessness, drug abuse, teen pregnancy, child abuse, after school care, dental care and many others.

KIDS COUNT is a national and state-by-state effort to track the well-being of children, through high quality data and trend analysis. We are grateful to the Annie E. Casey Foundation for their generous support of this effort in Missouri.
