Foster Care Services
When children cannot be cared for by their birth parents, LFCS is here to help with vital foster care services.
In Southwest Missouri, 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. 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. Learn more.
