Introducing the Children’s Home Society
Children’s Home Society of Missouri
Children’s Home Society offers a variety of services to meet the
needs of foster families,
adoptive families, and relative caregivers.
Individual and Family Counseling
Families are eligible for counseling services from a licensed
counselor or social worker with experience in the needs of children
who have now joined a new family through adoption or other means.
Medicaid is accepted and a sliding fee scale is available. Call
314-968-2350, ext. 241 or ext. 223 for more information.
Therapeutic Group Services
Therapeutic groups are designed to meet the needs of children with
histories of trauma, institutional life, abuse and neglect, or other
challenges that make social interaction, school functioning, and
family life difficult. These groups are limited in size and have two
clinically-trained professionals at each session. Please call
314-968-2350, ext. 241 for additional information or to register.
Trauma Assessment and Psychological Evaluation Services
Services are available for any child in foster care, who has been
adopted, or who lives in a guardianship/kinship situation.
Evaluation is provided by doctorate-level mental health
professionals specifically trained in the administration and
evaluation of standardized profiles.
The focus is placed on gathering a “whole” picture of the child by
incorporating past events, living situations, genetic information,
and current functioning. Medicaid is accepted and a sliding fee
scale is available. Call 314-968-2350, ext. 243 or ext. 223 for more
information or to schedule an appointment.
Grandparents as Parents Support Group
Grandparents raising their grandchildren can bring many joys but
also many challenges. Come meet with other families who are facing
similar struggles. Meetings are on the

Rd., St. Louis, MO 63144. For directions, more information or to

Adoptive Families Support Groups
Some children, especially those who have a history of having been
traumatized, bring many struggles to their families. Parenting them
can be a constant battle and can be very isolating. Come meet with
other families who are facing similar struggles. Meetings are on the
first and third Tuesdays 6:30 to 8 p.m. at 9445 Litzsinger Rd., St.
Louis, MO 63144. For directions, more information or to register
