In Northwest Missouri and the St. Louis metro area, there are more than 3,000 children currently in need of a safe family environment. At Cornerstones of Care, we believe every child deserves a loving place to call home. Because of this, we offer training and certification for many different levels of foster parents, who can offer
traditional, medical, elevated needs, treatment and respite care
Our community is in critical need of
Treatment Foster Care
parents. This is the highest level of care available and is focused on providing a safe and healing environment for children and youth who have experienced extreme trauma. These children, teens and sibling groups with an unfortunate history of abuse, neglect and other experiences necessitate special patience and a high level of empathy and care.
None of our TFC parents are left to care for children alone. Our highly-equipped, trauma-informed team provide them with an enhanced and individualized level of support to help children heal and prepare for the future. This includes:
- 24/7 access to support
- Specialized foster parent support groups with other TFC parents
- Regular phone calls and visits to check on the child’s behavior and your emotional well-being.
It is our priority to support our TFC parents as they care for these special children. If you or someone you know would like to be trained as a TFC parent, or if you would like more information, please reach out to us. Together, we can partner for safe and healthy children and families in all of our communities.
