The Maine Children’s Alliance (MCA) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose mission is to advocate for sound public policies that improve the lives of children, youth, and families in Maine. While MCA is involved in various policy areas, our focus for the First Session of the 126th Maine Legislature is on early childhood, health care, poverty reduction, and child safety.

MCA’s voice for children is amplified by the extensive work we accomplish in coalition with allied organizations. MCA is proud to work with the Start ME Right Coalition, a group of early childhood advocates and providers; Health Care for ME, a coalition dedicated to improving and expanding health care in Maine; and, an anti-poverty consortium that includes Maine Equal Justice, the Maine Women’s Lobby, the Maine Center for Economic Policy, and the Maine People’s Alliance. We also are a member of the Dental Access for ME Coalition, and the Alliance for a Clean and Healthy Maine--a group of individuals, businesses and organizations working to reduce toxic exposure for children and pregnant mothers. Together, we can achieve more positive results for children than by raising our voice alone.
