The Family and Community Trust (FACT) is the newest KIDS COUNT grantee in Missouri. KIDS COUNT is a national and state-by-state effort to track the well-being of children, through high quality data and trend analysis. “The selection of FACT provides a unique opportunity for a very well established statewide community-based organization, with state level leadership, to forge new partnerships and to expand access to valuable child-focused data and research” said Dennis Campa, Associate Director of Policy Reform and Advocacy with the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
