Complete these simple steps to become a foster parent in Missouri:

  • Contact the Grace Place at (417) 242-1332 or send an email to us at Graceplacechildren@Gmail.com, to set up a time to meet with one of our staff.  
  • Sign up for required State STARS training.
  • Complete three in-home visits throughout your STARS training weeks with your Grace Place licensing worker. During this time you will also complete medical forms, background checks, character references and all state required paperwork.
  • Lastly, you will complete one final in-home visit with your Grace Place licensing worker before receiving your license.   

Celebrate. You are now able to welcome a child into your home!
