Our Mission

Kansas kids need our help.

They need our help because young children can’t put food on the table by themselves. They can’t pay medical bills on their own. They can’t find an affordable place to live or quality child care. They depend on all of us – moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, and friends.

Kansas Action for Children’s mission is to shape health, education, and economic policy that will improve the lives of Kansas children and families.

We can change the present to transform the future.

Kansas Action for Children works across the political spectrum to improve the lives of Kansas children through bipartisan advocacy, partnership, and information-sharing on key issues. We work with policymakers, local organizations, and fellow advocates to inform sound policy, foster collaboration, and promote an equitable tax system.

The job is big, and there’s no time to waste. Our kids need a state full of people--from Garden City to Overland Park--willing to step up and be champions for them by using our voices and our votes to make a difference.

Join us in building a state where every child gets the care, education, and resources they need to grow up healthy and thrive.
