Missouri Families 4 Families (MOF4F) is a well-established, family-run organization with a long history of serving Missouri families. MOF4F began in 2006 and received 501(c)(3) status in 2016. Since then, MOF4F has worked to become a statewide organization with a diverse Board led by Executive Director, Barb Scheidegger, who is a parent and grandparent with 25 years of experience volunteering and supporting families. The MOF4F Board is 100% family-driven requiring that at least 51% of the Board are family-caregivers that have children/youth receiving mental health supports and services. MOF4F advocates for families across the state by representing family voice on state and local committees and advocating for families who have children/youth with mental health needs.
