At Missouri Baptist Children’s Home, we’ve seen hope turn from a vague idea into the concrete reality of total life change. When Jesus takes charge of broken stories, despair crumbles into dust as children find homes, youth find direction, parents find resources, and families find a future.

Here’s just a glimpse of the work MBCH does to invest in Missouri families:

Family Foster Care

Our case managers help children in state custody and their families work toward the best permanent placement option

Treatment Family Care

We provide trauma-informed training to empower foster parents to respond to severe behavioral and emotional needs with wisdom, skill, and love

Family Resource Development

No one should go it alone. We support foster and relative families through every step of their journey. When foster parents thrive, their kids do too!

Counseling Center

Our licensed therapists care for children, youth, and community clients in need of empathy, understanding, and direction.

Youth Drop-in Center

We’re opening a center where homeless kids and youth can connect with a case manager while eating a meal, taking a shower, washing their clothes, or just hanging out in a safe place


The church is called to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We come alongside local churches with training and resources to expand their reach and provide tangible help for their communities.

Therapeutic Group Homes

When foster care isn’t the right fit, we provide residential care for kids ages 6-21 with moderate to severe behavioral needs.

Pregnancy Services

Life matters to us from Day 1. We’re there for young moms with whatever they need: baby gear, childcare, support, training, or even residential care through the LIGHT House.

Transitional Living Program (TLP)

After foster care—then what? We offer group home and apartment options as we walk youth ages 16-21 toward adulthood and independence.

Human Trafficking Rescue

Survivors of sex trafficking need more than a shelter; they need vision. Our group home for girls and women helps them put the pieces back together as they discover God’s purpose for their next season.

Services For Developmentally Disabled

We care for the least of these at any age. Our group living facility provides attentive care and the love of Jesus for developmentally disabled adults.
