Strong partnerships

Safe Kids Columbia is affiliated with Safe Kids Worldwide, a global network of organizations united by the mission of preventing unintentional childhood injury. Unintentional childhood injury is one of the leading causes of death and disability for children ages 19 and under.

The Safe Kids Columbia Coalition provides support and resources to Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Cole, Cooper and Howard counties through a partnership led by the University of Missouri Women's and Children's Hospital.

Car Seat Safety

75 percent of car seats are not installed the right way. Please call Darla at 573-874-7556 to schedule a car seat inspection by a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician. If you need a car seat but cannot afford one, visit the Voluntary Action Center to apply for assistance. You must live in our service area and meet income guidelines to qualify.

Did you know car seats expire? Help us recycle old car seats!
