A REAL ANSWER

TO AN URGENT NEED

At any given time, there are approximately 15,000 children being served by the foster care system in Missouri. In 2016, over 7,500 children entered foster care, a 5.4% increase from the previous year. Across four agencies within Saint Louis PARTNERS, we care for nearly 600 children per year, and for more than 400 of these children on a daily basis. Our local need for foster care is very real and it is only increasing.

For every single one of the Missouri children left with loss, neglect and trauma, our work is tireless and imperative. Every single foster family is vital to our mission.
