The Children’s Trust Fund (CTF) Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2011 is now available and highlights CTF’s prevention activities, events, grants and public education campaigns from July 2010 through June 2011. During that time, CTF distributed nearly $2.5 million in prevention funding to support community-based programming such as home visitation, safe crib/safe sleep, crisis nursery, mentoring, Strengthening Families, parent education, family support and other prevention initiatives.
CTF continued its “Never Shake A Baby”, “Not Even For A Minute (NEFAM)”, “Words Hurt” and “Parent with Patience” public education campaigns. In addition, CTF partnered with the Department of Health & Senior Services to provide safe cribs and safe sleep education to Missouri counties in need of a safe crib program, partnered with the Missouri Department of Transportation to highlight CTF’s NEFAM campaign to never leave children unattended in vehicles, and responded to the Joplin tornado disaster by providing prevention funds to local organizations who work with children and their families. In its 28th year, CTF has distributed over $42 million in prevention funds from donations and dedicated fees since its inception in 1983.
