We're very proud to share the launch of our brand-new education campaign
The Net Benefit
! We created this nonpartisan campaign because we've found that when Missourians' basic needs are not met, their health is negatively impacted. Through this effort we are reinforcing how important it is for our families, friends, and neighbors to have access to food, shelter, health care, and economic support. However, for this campaign to succeed, we're counting on all our partners and grantees to help share the message.
Missourians are connected to the support and resources they need to lead healthy lives through a combination of state and federal programs, dedicated professionals, volunteers, and community organizations. In fact, programs like SNAP, WIC, TANF, Medicaid, SSI, disability, and housing assistance ensure an estimated 1.1 million Missourians have access to care, including 250,000 children.
We've brought together people and organizations across the state - from educators to health care providers, civic and faith leaders to local community organizations - to highlight that when Missourians' basic needs are met, they have the opportunity to live up to their potential and pursue their dreams. This brings limitless value to their communities and to our state.
We have collaborated with several organizations on the development of the campaign, including: The Children's Trust Fund, Columbia Housing Authority, Empower Missouri, Missouri Community Action Network, Missouri Primary Care Association, Missouri School Board Association, and Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis.
