Who We Are

Who We Are
The Safe Kids St. Louis Coalition is happy that you chose to visit our site. We work hard to provide injury prevention for children ages 0-14 in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Jefferson County, Franklin County, and Washington County. We collaborate with many agencies to make sure that children in our area are safe. Please visit the portions that interest you and let us know if we can be of assistance.
What We Do
Safe Kids Worldwide promotes changes in attitudes, behaviors, laws and the environment to prevent accidental injury to children.  In the United States, we have contributed to a 45 percent reduction in the child fatality rate from accidental injury  –  saving an estimated 38,000 children’s lives.   Canada achieved a 37 percent reduction in child accidental deaths between 1994 and 2003, while the German child death rate declined 80 percent since 1980 and 75 percent in Austria between 1983 and 2003.  We’ve distributed more than 2.5 million bike helmets and 250,000 smoke alarms and checked more than 740,000 car seats.
