Big Changes in the Kansas City and the Northwest Region
In early 2013, the Missouri Children’s Division announced that it was going to privatize all Family Resource Development work in Kansas City and the Northwest Region. The Family Resource Development work includes recruiting, training, licensing and maintaining Foster/adoptive and relative/kinship resource families. We partnered with Cornerstones of Care and Midwest Foster Care and Adoption Association, and were awarded the contract.
This is a huge expansion of our ministry in this region. We will begin ministering to about 400 new licensed resource homes and will add 13 new staff members to meet this need. Fall 2013 is a transition period between Children’s Division and our partnership. Please pray for our staff during this exciting and challenging time.
Kansas City Regional Office Has Moved
Our Kansas City offices moved to Wornall Road Baptist Church where The LIGHT House administrative office is located. We are looking forward to being housed together with our affiliate, and we are hoping that this closeness will bring many benefits to both agencies. Our phone numbers are the same and this is our new mailing address:
