Mission

Missouri Baptist Children’s Home is committed to serving God by responding to the needs of children, youth and families to make a lasting difference in their lives.

Values Statement

The ministries, programs and services of Missouri Baptist Children’s Home are guided and informed by our beliefs and commitments to:

  • Biblical Worldview: We are an unapologetically Christian Faith-Based organization that operates within the statement of faith of the Southern Baptist Convention (as described in the “Baptist Faith and Message”). We believe the Bible is God’s revelation to mankind and is the foundation of all that we do. We believe we find forgiveness, hope, healing and restoration in our relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
  • Higher Calling: We believe we are called by God to minister to the hurting children, youth, adults and families of our world. Since our work is Biblically mandated, we provide an atmosphere of hope and faith as we model our walk with Christ in all personal and professional relationships.
  • Sanctity of Life: We believe all human beings are created by God in His image. Since every person, from conception to natural death, possesses inherent dignity and immeasurable worth, we are called to defend, protect and value all human life.
  • Strengthening and Finding Families: We believe God ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. We strive, therefore, to assist our clients to achieve permanency by strengthening or finding families that work.
  • Professionalism: We believe this ministry demands that we integrate the highest professional standards and evidence-based practices with our Christian faith, thereby providing the best possible care for our clients.
  • Trauma-Informed Care: We believe that a history of trauma or adverse childhood experiences can seriously impair the future of successful relationships and capabilities. We believe that trauma which occurred in relationships should find healing in relationships. We therefore seek to provide trauma-informed ministries that address the whole person: spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Foster parents receive a maintenance payment to help cover some of the care costs of raising a child. The rate parents receive varies depending on the child's age and their special needs. Foster children also receive a clothing allowance, covering their medical needs.

The Missouri Department of Social Services website shows you the latest rates.

However, these maintenance payments aren't always enough. Everything from school supplies to toys can cut into that budget. Many businesses and organizations are stepping up to help cover the gaps and assist foster families.

Foster Together provides a walk-in shopping service for foster children free of charge. Kids can find new and like-new clothing, toys, car seats, and more.

Foster parents caring for younger children can look to Nurses for Newborns, which provides health assessments, screenings, education, and more support.

Another valuable resource is respite care, which gives foster parents a break when needed. Respite foster care is a temporary service offered by other trained foster families. It's also useful in the event of an emergency situation.

Hello everyone my name is Rocko Fowler and I was at the Missouri Baptist children's home on st-charles Rock road when I was 14 in St Louis Missouri I had a horrible experience there I was givin medication that I didn't even know what kind of meds I was being given I felt zombied out all the time I was always in a locked room I was always shunned and told that I would never amount to be anything and that I will burn in hell this place was the beginning of the horror story that kept going on for pretty long time till I was able to start to heal and realize what happened to me in such a horrible place I don't recommend this place I think it's unsafe I remember being abused while I was there I remember being restrained more than one time and being put in what they call the quiet room i was forced to take medication So eventually I awalled and left this place. Hope this finds you well. I'm currently 35 I have a fb page called shut down Missouri Baptist children's homes for those who need a place to Express like and join. I'm currently 35 and I'm speaking for our rights

I have never actually been here, (but a friend lives around there), but they are building new buildings for the kids. I'm happy that it's a place where they help and take care of kids.

I lived in the home for 6 months. Most of the staff treats the children there like garbage, we were spoken down to and belittled to the other girls in the home. This is not a safe place for children. They treated us like we burdened them when they chose their jobs.
