Waterville, ME - On September 6, 2014, surrounded by child advocates representing 11 of Maine's 16 counties, MCA released a Platform for Maine's Children at the Maine Children's Convention. The Platform offers a vision for how we might close the gap between what we know children need for health and well-being and what we do to ensure it. It is intended to inform citizens and policymakers about the best ways to secure positive outcomes for children across all domains of child well-being.
