Missouri CURE organizes and unites incarcerated people, their families, and others for education and advocacy in criminal justice issues. They seek to reduce crime through reform of the criminal justice system. Their mission is to ensure that prisons are only used for those who absolutely must be incarcerated and that they are used only for the purposes of rehabilitation and education. CURE does not provide legal services. They advocate for criminal justice reform and do not take on individual cases. They provide useful resources and legislation to aid incarcerated people affected by criminal justice issues.
