Interested in Fostering?
CHS provides training for families interested in becoming licensed foster parents or adopting a child through the Department of Social Services Children's Division. The Specialized Training, Assessment, Resources & Support (STARS) program is required for families interested in foster care or adoption for children in the custody of the State of Missouri (as well as most of the other states). Classes are free to families but do require registration. If you would like additional information, please contact your local Children's Division office or visit www.dss.mo.gov.
