Who are Missourians to End Poverty?

Our Vision
  As Missourians, we envision a just society of shared responsibility by
 individuals, communities, business, and government
 in which all individuals
are respected, have opportunities to reach their full potential
and to
participate in thriving, diverse, sustainable communities.


Missouri is a state rich in beauty and prosperity, in education and opportunity, in security and health, in values and vision. Yet, within our richness, lies poverty and fear, hunger and homelessness, unmet potential and despair.  Missourians to End Poverty is a group of organizations statewide that have come together to discuss the issue of poverty and how we can create change for the benefit of all communities.  We have 5 pillars and a policy platform which we believe can have a meaningful impact on poverty.
