Igniting Change

Across our neighborhoods, our nation, and our world – Mission Kids is fostering advocacy, research, and action for children’s safety and justice.

The External Affairs Department at Mission Kids takes our mission to protect and heal child abuse victims to the global stage. We dive deep into international research studies, seeking out the best ways to heal and safeguard these young survivors. As subject matter experts, we’re not just about collecting data – we’re about sharing our findings far and wide, through presentations and publications that shed light on what works best.

But we don’t stop there.

We’re also on the front lines closer to home, sitting on committees at the local, statewide, and national levels. Why? Because we’re determined to help shape laws that better protect children and bring justice to those who have suffered abuse. At Mission Kids, we’re not just about making a difference – we’re about making sure it counts, wherever and whenever it’s needed most.

We love sharing our expertise and joining research. Have a project or looking for guidance? Let's collaborate for child protection!

Passion fuels our mission for change and safety for every child.

Policy Powerhouse: Advocating for Children's Safety and Justice

Mission Kids plays a crucial role in public policy by actively participating in committees at the local, regional, state, and national levels of governance. Through our involvement, we contribute expertise and insights to shape recommendations for improving existing laws or crafting new ones aimed at safeguarding children from abuse and ensuring justice for victims.
