Connecting and Strengthening Families
Entering foster care is marked by significant, emotional transition and upheaval for the children in addition to the trauma of experiencing abuse or neglect. FosterAdopt Connect’s Family Connections Center is a shelter which provides immediate, intensive family and community engagement services while maintaining sibling connections for 18 children at a time ages 0 to 18.
This unique care is coupled with comprehensive assessment services for each child, school liaison services, and preschool instruction for younger children so that every child can move back home or to a foster home without having fallen behind academically or developmentally.
A Safe Haven Made to Feel Like Home
The home-like environment encourages parents to safely engage and love their children, while also letting siblings stay together and minimize additional distress. Children share meals, complete homework, receive tutoring, play, and enjoy recreational activities made possible by generous donations and volunteers.
You can make a difference for a child in the Family Connections Center by volunteering, donating passes to activities in the Kansas City metro, or hosting a drive.
