Empower Missouri

Empower Missouri is a citizen membership organization founded in 1901. Organized in the Progressive Era, we started in St. Louis as the Missouri Conference on Corrections and Charities. We were mostly a statewide professional forum for philanthropists, government employees of human services agencies, and private charity professionals. For the first decade, our activities consisted mostly of meeting once a year to discuss social problems and read papers.

Empower Missouri became a more activist organization in 1910, with our first legislative committee under the leadership of Roger Baldwin, subsequent founder of the American Civil Liberties Union. We began advocating for changes in public policy to improve social conditions. Among our first major successes was the creation of the Widow’s Pension Program, a pilot project in Jackson County, Missouri, which spread around the country and became the model for the national Aid to Dependent Children Program passed in the Social Security Act of 1935.
