First-hand Insights

We launched First-hand Insights in 2021 to give our stakeholders reliable information and real-life inspiration. Why? Because we believe those working hardest on behalf of children deserve to hear directly from trusted sources and thought-leaders in their field. Think of it as “news for CTF insiders,” a periodic, first-hand look at the tangible steps being taken to protect and strengthen Missouri’s kids and families.


Our current issue includes:

  • 2024 Legislative Agenda
  • State of the State: Wins for Kids!
  • CTF Annual Report, Grants and State Plan Letter Available Now!
  • Response Funding Opportunity!
  • Something We Agree On Campaign Updates

Join CTF's "First To Know" List!

As a partner in our shared mission to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect, you deserve to hear it first.  Sign up today to receive our quarterly newsletter with timely & relevant updates about the impact of our work, informative interviews with heroes that YOU nominate, and meaningful opportunities for action in every issue of First-Hand Insights.

Nominate someone for “Hero Highlights”

Nominate a hero for Emily to interview in an upcoming edition of First-hand Insights. A hero doesn’t have to be a recipient of CTF funding, or, really, connected to CTF. The most important thing about the hero you nominate is that the work they are doing to keep kids safe inspires you to keep doing yours.

Use the form below to let us know about your Hero Nominee. We won’t contact them until we make a selection and get a little more information from you. Also, while we’ll give you an opportunity to reach out to them on our behalf, your nominee doesn’t have to know who nominated them. Get started by sharing just a few details with us, and a member of our staff will be in touch.
