Caring for Kids and Creating Families Central Missouri

Our Central Missouri team is growing! Through our partnership with the Missouri Alliance for Children and Families (MCAF), we are pleased to announce the expansion of our Foster Care Case Management (FCCM) program to now include Columbia and Jefferson City.

FCCM is a vital program to the safety and health of children in foster care, and our case management specialist care deeply for the youth with whom they are matched. They advocate for each child’s needs and work with Missouri Children’s Division to develop and implement treatment plans, ensure the best experience possible within their foster homes, and, when possible, help facilitate reunification with the children’s birth families. 

This addition of services means that we added eight new positions at our Columbia Missouri office under the management of Christy Collins, our director of the Missouri central region. 

“We are excited about the opportunity to provide these new services to the area’s most vulnerable children and families,” explains Christy. “We look forward to partnering with the community to keep children safe and families together!” 

MCAF is a collective of organizations, including Cornerstones of Care, dedicated to healing the trauma experienced by children and families through creative collaboration, high standards, best practices and an innovative system of care. Through this network, partner agencies and MCAF staff serve more than 1,600 children, youth and their families in the state of Missouri.
