The Missouri Alliance for Children and Families (MACF) was founded in 1997, when a group of non-profit agencies joined forces to develop an innovative system of care for children with severe emotional and behavioral needs. MACF is governed by eight of Missouri’s most highly respected private, non-profit family and child serving agencies. Collectively, our partner agencies offer a wide spectrum of services designed to help children and families mitigate the trauma of abuse and neglect through treatment, case management and a commitment to ensuring children have safe and lifelong families.
