Welcome

Caring for Kids immediately provides essential resources to meet the urgent needs of abused, neglected or at-risk children in St. Louis County...because kids' urgent needs can't wait!

Did You Know?
» In any given month, the Family Court of St. Louis County provides services to approximately 1,300 children?
» Children come under the Family Court jurisdiction because of neglect and/or physical or sexual abuse by caretakers or others?
» Untreated substance abuse by parent(s) or untreated depression can often lead to a referral to the Family Court?
» Tutoring services, once routinely provided by school systems, are no longer offered in many schools?
» Only $250 per year is made available for clothing vouchers for children ages seven and older in foster or residential care?

Caring For Kids brings hope to children and families by fulfilling these essential needs. The systems serving these children now have an organization to call upon when faced with unmet, immediate needs. With the help of Caring For Kids, children can be reunited with their families and leave foster care; sometimes this requires simply a bed.

 

Mission Statement:
Caring for Kids immediately provides essential resources to meet the urgent needs of abused, neglected or at-risk children in St. Louis County.
