Learn how we work with our coalitions across the US to protect children.Safe Kids works with more than 500 coalitions in 49 states and the District of Columbia across the country. Our coalitions consist of incredibly dedicated and caring volunteers. They are nurses, police officers, firefighters, paramedics, doctors, teachers, business leaders, legislators and parents. They work overtime and go above and beyond for one common goal: keeping your kids safe.

Each coalition is led by a local organization such as a hospital, health department or community-based organization that provides staff, operational support and the other resources our coalitions need to do their jobs. Based on the needs of their community, coalitions implement evidence-based programs that help parents and caregivers prevent childhood injuries.
