The Missouri Strengthening Families Initiative (SFI), supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), is a cost effective strategy to prevent child abuse and neglect by helping early childhood centers work with families to build protective factors around children.  Missouri Children’s Trust Fund currently supports the SFI model in six child care centers through a grant provided by the National Alliance of Children’s Trust and Prevention Funds.  More on the SFI model
