Becoming a Foster Parent

Are you interested in becoming a foster parent?

Children in crisis need temporary safe, loving homes while their birth parents make permanent plans for their future.  If you would like to make a difference in the life of a child in need, contact LFCS today! All foster parents must be at least 21-years old.

For specific questions or concerns, send LFCS an email or call 314-787-5100 and ask for Family Services Intake.


Complete the LFCS Foster Parent Inquiry to begin your foster parenting journey.


Additional foster parent programs are available in Southwest Missouri through the Springfield Partners. Please call 417-862-1972 for more details.
