The Monique Burr Foundation for Children (MBF) is a nonprofit organization located in Jacksonville, FL. MBF was started by Edward E. Burr in 1997 on the one-year anniversary of the death of Monique Burr, his late wife, to continue her legacy of child protection and child advocacy. Although our strategies may have changed over the years, our core mission has remained the same – to protect children by providing the best comprehensive, evidence-based prevention education programs.
Research shows that 95% of abuse is preventable through education, which is why we created MBF Prevention Education Programs. Our prevention programs educate and empower children and relevant adults with information and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to the four types of child abuse (physical, emotional, sexual, and neglect), exploitation, bullying, cyberbullying, digital abuse, and other digital dangers.
MBF is now a leader in prevention education with our programs having reached over three million children throughout Florida and the United States.
