Springfield Partners, LLC is a consortium of three agencies devoted to children: Preferred Family Healthcare, Lutheran Family and Children's Services, and Good Samaritan Boys Ranch, all have a distinguished history of caring for children. SGF Partners works with Missouri Children's Division to reunite families or find forever homes for children in foster care. We also offer Foster Care Resource Home licensing and training.

Springfield Partners provides performance-based foster care case management services in Greene, Barry, Lawrence, Stone, and Taney Counties. SGF Partners provides case management as authorized by the Children's Division to children and families:
Through the non-judgmental support of my case manager, I was able to start all over again with my children and provide them a happy, secure home.
SGF Partners provides case management services which are designed to ensure the safety of all children served, including those remaining in the home, and works to ensure stability and permanency for those children who are placed in out-of-home care. SGF Partners emphasizes and strives to meet the following goals: One of the roles of Springfield Partners is developing foster homes. There are thousands of children in Missouri who need a loving home. While some might see it as heroic to love and care for a child, Springfield Partners sees it simply as caring people who want to make a difference in the life of a foster child.

The average age of a child in foster care is ten years old. However, children in foster care can range from newborn to 21 years of age.

Children may be in foster care for one day or longer. The goal of foster care is to provide a safe, nurturing home for a child while support and assistance is given to the biological parents in order to make their home safe for the child's return. Most children return home to their birth families, though some are placed with adoptive, kinship, or guardianship families.

All foster children are eligible for medical assistance, which covers medical, prescription, dental, and mental health services.

It is possible to work full-time and be a foster parent. Child care is provided by the state, as needed.
