Kids Win Missouri is a coalition of organizations and individuals dedicated to improving the well-being of Missouri children.

The closures of Citizens for Missouri’s Children in June 2010 and Partnership for Children in 2013 left Missouri’s children without a voice in the state policy arena.  A small group of children’s advocacy stakeholders met in late 2013 to examine the landscape and explore options for moving forward to make the concept of a new statewide children’s advocacy organization, the Missouri Children’s Leadership Council, operational.  The organization rebranded in 2017, which resulted in a new name for the organization, Kids Win Missouri.


To further child well-being by advancing the health, education, safety and development of Missouri children and their families, especially those who are at-risk because of poverty, abuse, neglect, racial inequities or other risk factors.


That Missouri children have the opportunity to be healthy, happy and successful.
