"Giving Maine Kids A Voice"
The Maine Children's Alliance (MCA) is committed to improving the lives of Maine’s children, youth and families.
We provide non-partisan leadership by promoting and advocating for sound public policies that benefit Maine’s children. A resource for partners and policy-makers, we provide comprehensive data and information about the status and well-being of Maine’s children. We contribute to positive change by collaborating with partners at the state, regional and national levels.
Founded in 1994, MCA is a nonpartisan, data-focused advocate for public policies that improve the lives of Maine’s children, youth and families. By collecting and analyzing data on children and their health, economic and educational status, MCA seeks to link research to practice and public policy.
Our non-profit organization brings diverse groups together in coalitions to support policy initiatives that benefit children, provide oversight in state policy arenas and serve as a resource on children and family policy issues at the local and national levels.
Based in Augusta, MCA is supported by individuals, foundations, businesses and organizations with a commitment to the health and well-being of Maine’s children.
The orange giraffe is our symbol because MCA salutes all those who "stick their necks out for kids." We present Giraffe Awards at our annual Champions for Children event each October to honor community members who have done great work to support Maine kids.
