The Children’s Services Fund Coalition is a community-driven organization in the Kansas City region. The Coalition proposes real solutions for funding gaps that exist in the delivery of services that protect our children’s future. As a result of an $80 million gap that was discovered in a recent study of children’s protective and mental health services in Jackson and Clay counties, the Coalition was formed in 2014 in response to the crisis.
The Children’s Services Fund Coalition is comprised of leaders who face the challenges, every day, of delivering vital services to at-risk children and youth. As one of their first actions, these leaders are proposing the establishment of Children’s Services Funds in Jackson and Clay counties.
