Mission Kids is committed to reaching out to the diverse communities in Montgomery County to teach adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Our goal is to increase knowledge, improve attitudes, and change child protective behaviors.
By growing and expanding our educational outreach services, Mission Kids is working to empower local communities to recognize, report, and support victims of child abuse.
