MCCA advocates for change important to Missouri’s children and families.  We promote policies that support child abuse prevention (primary and secondary), effective intervention, and high impact education, treatment and care for those who have experienced abuse, and their families.

MCCA follows Missouri’s General Assembly and the US Congress for actions impacting child and family welfare, engages its elected leaders on these issues, sponsors Friday Capitol calls during the Missouri legislative session, and sends out legislative action alerts and requests for action.  All member organizations are eligible for Advocacy Committee membership.
