The mission of Cops for Kids is to provide financial assistance to non-profits dedicated to children, believing that community programs targeted out the youth can make a true impact on children’s growth, development and future success.

Catch-A-Dream Foundation is a national charitable non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation that provides once-in-a-lifetime dream hunting and fishing trips to children across the United States and Canada, age 18 and younger, who suffer from life-threatening illnesses. Through these adventures and exposure to outdoors-minded people who care, the program instills in these children a message of encouragement at a time when they need to know that hope does, indeed, exist.

Children’s Smile Center is a local nonprofit organization that provides preventive and primary dental care at no charge to the families of children ages 1-19 and expectant mothers with active Medicaid who reside in Stone, Taney, Christian, Barry, Lawrence and Dade Counties. Children’s Smile Center has offices in Ozark, Aurora and Branson West.
