Who We Are

Missouri Health Care for All is a statewide, non-partisan, movement committed to securing access to affordable, high-quality health care choices for all Missourians.

Our work spans several major program areas: Base-building, public education, storybanking, grassroots mobilization, media, coalitions, and policy and lobbying work. This breadth of strategies is allowing MHCFA to play a lead role in defending against federal and state attacks on current health care programs, while continuing to call for improvements in our system.

As of Spring 2017, more than 15,000 individuals from across the state have joined our movement. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization led by a volunteer Board of Directors, a 6 FTE staff, and grassroots leaders working in their local communities.

Wanted: Board Members and Local Leaders

We are seeking leaders who are passionate about expanding access to health care in Missouri. We are working to grow our Board of Directors, as well as grow our grassroots leadership in local communities.

All who are interested are encouraged to apply.

About our Board of Directors

Missouri Health Care for All’s Board of Directors serves as both our organization’s guiding group and our most active leaders. We maintain a “working Board” that both governs and and helps move our work forward. Our goal is to have a statewide board that is truly diverse, with special emphasis on representing different geographic regions, including a rich array of denominations and faith groups and reflecting our state’s diversity in ethnic origin, racial background, party affiliation, and ability. We are a nonpartisan organization and welcome board members of differing political parties who share our belief that all Missourians deserve access to quality, affordable health care.

Expectations of Board Members

The time commitment for board members is approximately 5-10 hours per month.

Board meetings are held six times a year on the third Tuesday of the month (unless a major conflict arises). Our meeting schedule is as follows:

  • January – Conference Call
  • March – In-Person, Jefferson City
  • April – Conference Call
  • June – Annual 2-day Board retreat, St. Louis
  • September – In-Person, Jefferson City
  • November – In-Person, Jefferson City

Most board calls and meetings are held from 11am – 2 pm.

In addition to attending monthly meetings, we ask Board members to:

  • Actively participate in discussions and decisions about the direction of the organization
  • Help grow our movement by networking with potential Missouri Health Care for All supporters
  • Positively represent Missouri Health Care for All in the community
  • Provide monthly oversight of the Missouri Health Care for All’s finances (fiduciary responsibility)
  • Help with fundraising efforts, including making a personal financial gift each year
  • Volunteer for local and statewide programming as appropriate

Applying for Board Membership:

Our Board of Directors is seeking applicants for Board service. To help us elect the best possible slate for the organization, interested potential board members are asked to submit a short application. We will review all of the received applications and nominate a slate that brings the greatest strength possible to the board.

If you are not nominated for a board position at this time, we will contact you about other ways you can help Missouri Health Care for All.
