Kids at Risk Action (KARA) is a non-profit action tank that supports the people, policies, and programs that improve the lives of at-risk children. We are passionate and unapologetic advocates for the welfare of abused and neglected kids in Minnesota, the United States, and around the world.
KARA founder and child advocate Mike Tikkanen speaks with educators, law enforcement and groups across the country on working with abused and neglected kids and how best to improve the policies and programs that support our community’s most at-risk children. Learn more about the presentations Mike could bring to your group.
Your generous support helps KARA continue to advocate for abused and neglected children. There are all sorts of ways to donate, from one-time contributions to car donations to legacy gifts. Thanks for supporting KARA and at-risk kids.
