The Children’s Trust Fund Fiscal Year 2017 Annual Report highlights CTF’s grants, partners, public education campaigns and overall prevention work from July 2016 through June 2017. During that time, CTF awarded over $1.6 million in prevention funding to support over 100 community-based programs providing parent/family education, home visiting, safe sleep education, mentoring, respite care, sexual abuse prevention, fatherhood initiatives, protective factors training, public awareness, parent café training and much more. Since its 1983 inception, CTF has awarded nearly $58 million to strengthening families and prevent child abuse and neglect in Missouri.
