All of our Care Families are licensed foster families in the state of Missouri. A CFS social worker will walk you through the licensing process to guide you through training and answer any questions you may have along the way.
Once you are a licensed Care Family (foster family), we will place you on our list of families to call when a need arises for a temporary placement of a child. You will always reserve the right to decline a placement of a child if the timing does not presently work for your immediate family. The health of your family is imperative to the health of our ConnectCare Program. The average length of stay for a child with a Care Family is one month.
It is important to highlight our goal of reunification of every child in our ConnectCare program with their biological parents. If you feel a strong desire toward growing your family through adoption, we urge you to seek out an adoption program that can meet your needs.
