Mission Statement

Our mission is to create permanency in every foster child's life by recruiting and supporting foster/adoptive homes in the St. Louis metropolitan community.

Description

The Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition is a non-profit agency, founded in 1985 with the support of the United Way of Greater St. Louis. Our mission is to create permanency in every foster child's life by recruiting and supporting foster/adoptive homes in the St. Louis metropolitan community.

We are the area's largest recruiter of foster/adoptive homes because of our partnerships with the local media, including KSDK and 13 local newspapers. If you are interested in becoming a foster or adoptive parent to one of the area's 1,000 waiting children, click here. If you would like to find out other ways to help children in foster care, click here.

Foster and adoptive parenting is a rewarding--but demanding--job. We offer many supports to parents, including support groups, training, advocacy, a newsletter , a resale shop, and the Little Wishes program.

We are a coalition of 38 member agencies, including the area's most-respected public and private agencies. For a list of our member agencies, click here.

Simple way to get involved and be helpful

The staff was great and I had a nice time. I helped do some prep work for their new store in Brentwood. They really have an ambitious project which will really benefit foster families and the community. Jen was fabulous!
