An organization that focuses on the well being of the state’s children is celebrating its 20th anniversary, tackling new challenges facing the kids. Citizens for Missouri’s Children got its start in 1983. Executive Director Beth Griffin says the organization started out looking after the needs of children in foster care but it has now expanded its efforts. Griffin says the state’s budget crunch has resulted in less money for the programs she says are necessary to help Missouri’s children in need. She’s hoping the money flow will improve once the economy improves.
