Foster Care Services
When children cannot be cared for by their birth parents, LFCS is here to help with vital foster care services.
In the Southwest Missouri Office, LFCS also works with foster families who are specifically trained to provide temporary care to children who have been abused or neglected and are in the state foster care system. The program is called Springfield Partners, which is a collaborative effort between LFCS, Alternative Opportunities, Inc. and Good Samaritan Boys Ranch. (Springfield Partners Foster Care Brochure) Greene County has one of the highest rates of child abuse and neglect in Missouri, and we need your help to care for foster children.
In the Franklin County Office, LFCS also works with foster families who are specifically trained to provide care to children who have been abused or neglected and are in the state foster care system. The program is called St. Louis Partners, which is a collaborative effort between LFCS, Good Shepard, Bringing Families Together, and Our Little Haven.
We provide foster/adoption services, as well. To be a foster parent, you must be 21 years or older, you can be single or married, be of good, moral character and be willing to care for additional children in your home. Please contact Southwest Missouri office at 417-862-1972 or our Franklin County office at 314-808-3997 to learn more about LFCS Foster Care Services.
