We Couldn't Do This Without You
Massachusetts Citizens for Children (MassKids) is a private 501(c)(3) organization. We are a donor supported non-profit organization. We rely on the financial support of concerned citizens like you to continue our work to prevent child abuse in our homes and communities.
MassKids is made up of individuals who care deeply about children and are passionate about ensuring their right to safe, stable and healthy childhoods. As stewards for children, we pride ourselves in being a “no frills” organization that carefully considers how each dollar can be spent to have the greatest effect.
Throughout 2020, we are:
- Educating thousands more public and private school personnel about child sexual abuse prevention through live trainings and our evidence-informed online e-learning course which has reached nearly 7500 school employees;
- Promoting our new e-learning course for youth serving organization employees;
- Providing consultation to schools and youth-serving organizations to strengthen their policies and practices to keep the children they serve safe;
- Working with Massachusetts communities to ensure passage of the comprehensive legislation on sexual abuse prevention;
