Support for New Parents

Fostering is hard and every foster parent deserves all the support they can get! In Missouri, foster parents are required to attend 30+ hours of training each year. Of those, 14 can be earned through trainings not held in person…including webinars! These webinars will be added to periodically and we hope you’ll find topics which will help you! Be sure to complete the quiz below the video and return the certificate to your licensing worker to receive your training credit.

Become a Foster Parent

The state of Missouri requires 27 hours of pre-service training for all foster and adoptive parents. The STARS curriculum is an integral part of the licensing process for FosterAdopt Connect-licensed homes and FosterAdopt Connect offers the program at its headquarters a minimum of four time each year.

If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please call 1-855-778-5437 to complete the intake process and get enrolled in STARS!
