Missouri KIDS COUNT® has launched its new website including feature stories, policy briefs, and connections to new and improved data sources.
The updated website includes the Missouri KIDS COUNT® data book that highlights indicators and county rankings, a searchable archive of Missouri KIDS COUNT® data available since 1993, statistical reports, and research papers.
The Missouri Family and Community Trust (FACT), is the official Annie E. Casey (AECF) KIDS COUNT® partner in Missouri. FACT is a not-for-profit with board members drawn from the top leadership in state government and the private sector to promote and support collaboration and innovation in service delivery for Missouri’s children and families through its network of 20 “community partnerships” around the state. ARCHS is the St. Louis region’s state designated community partnership.
FACT partners with the University of Missouri Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis (OSEDA), and the Missouri Children’s Trust Fund (CTF) to offer Missouri KIDS COUNT® services.
ARCHS will be providing local educational briefings about KIDS COUNT® and creating case studies that document the St. Louis area’s efforts to improve the quality of life for St. Louis’ most vulnerable, at-risk children.
