We Believe

  1. Every child deserves to be safe and healthy, in a loving home and supportive community.
  2. A safe place to sleep is a child’s first step to health and healing.
  3. Families deserve a chance to stay together.

We are committed to understanding, recognizing and responding to the effects of trauma. And we know that children and youth have the best opportunity to thrive when they launch into adulthood from a caring and compassionate home. But we need your help.

The Greatest Need in Our Communities

In Northwest Missouri, nearly 3,000 children are in need of loving, temporary homes. Many of these children have experienced significant trauma, making it difficult to participate — let alone succeed — in school and in the home. Our greatest need is treatment foster care — a 24/7 support program empowering foster families to help youth overcome trauma and prepare for the future. Specifically, we’re in critical need for homes for youth ages 11-19 and sibling groups.
