Background Statement

Cornerstones of Care was incorporated in 1998 as a family of agencies (Gillis, Healthy Families, Marillac, Ozanam, and Spofford) to serve children and families. Each of these agencies had been serving local children and families dating back to the 1800s. Having similar and complementary missions, the agencies realized that greater collaboration would better leverage the agency strengths and programs, while sharing resources and ideas to create stronger services for children and families. The primary objectives were:

  1. Establish a system that provides quality services to children and families.
  2. Create a stronger infrastructure; cost containment and greater efficiencies.
  3. More competitive and better prepared to respond to State privatization efforts.
  4. Develop new business opportunities.
Since inception, Cornerstones of Care and each of our individual agencies has continually transformed to benefit our staff and those we serve. We have helped thousands of children in foster care achieve permanency, and been a leader in community-based solutions. We have recruited/licensed thousands of foster and adoptive homes. We brought the first Treatment Foster Care program to the Kansas City region, and have been a local and early adopter of Functional Family Therapy.
 
In late 2015, the vision to continue evolving to do more for those we serve, to serve more, and to do so from a continued strong financial position, lead our leaders and 100+ board members to embark on an 18-month due diligence process. The end result was a decision to legally merge into one organization. On January 1, 2017, the Cornerstones of Care family of agencies officially merged to become one higher-impact organization, retaining the Cornerstones of Care name.
 

Cornerstones of Care continues to provide a full spectrum of 30+ programs and services, including foster care and adoption, education, mental and behavioral health, youth support and family support services. We provide these on our campuses (Spofford, Gillis and Ozanam); in 12 offices extending as far as Wichita, Maryville and St. Louis; in school districts throughout the region and in the homes of families throughout KC, Eastern Kansas and NW Missouri. United, we are a partner for more than 10,000 children and families, ultimately working to keep children safe, families strong and communities healthy. 

Impact Statement

2017 was a year of positive growth and change. Our family of agencies (Gillis, Healthy Families, Marillac, Ozanam & Spofford) united for the next step in our journey together, legally becoming one higher-impact organization on January 1, 2017. Focused on providing the highest quality care to the thousands of children and families we serve, our specific achievements included:

  • 3,644 children and families received mental & behavioral healthcare.
  • 3,565 community members attended our trainings, plus 121 received secondary trauma consultations.
  • 1,626 children in foster care received services while 1,533 homes were licensed to support foster & adoptive children.
  • 567 adults attended our relationship-strengthening classes.
  • 344 families received prevention and intervention services.
  • 308 students were served in our day treatment programs, ensuring they achieve success in the classroom.
  • Expanded mental & behavioral health services to St. Louis via a partnership with the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition.
  • Expanded functional family therapy to 29 counties in NE Kansas via a collaboration with the KS Department of Corrections.

Goals for 2018:

  • Bring Solution-Based Casework® to Missouri, an evidence-based preventative model designed to reduce lengths of stay for youth in residential treatment & reduce re-entries of children into state custody by increasing domestic permanency.
  • Launch a Bridge Clinic to provide uninterrupted care for children in foster care, including dentistry, via a partnership with KC Care Clinic.
  • Increase the number of licensed treatment foster homes in NW Missouri to provide loving, temporary homes for children who have experienced significant trauma.
  • Expand our transitional living program to NW Missouri to aid more youth in learning the life skills they need in order to become self-sufficient.
  • Meet fundraising goals to ensure program sustainability and growth, including capitalizing on being the Chiefs Charity Game beneficiary.
Needs Statement

Cornerstones of Care has identified the following 6 priorities for 2018.

  1. Recruit foster families, specifically treatment foster care (TFC) homes. We are in need of those homes who can support children with elevated health needs or sibling groups as both the numbers of children coming into care and the evidence that children heal best when in a home in the community continues to grow. We currently have 10 active homes and 11 in the training/qualifying TFC process.
  2. Secure funding support for foster families who must purchase clothing, provide medical supplies, furnish bedrooms, etc. above and beyond what state reimbursements allow.
  3. Meet fundraising goals to ensure sustainability of our programs and maintain our facilities.
  4. Boost volunteer support, specifically as positive role models for our kids as Reading Buddies, Mentors, hosting birthday parties, playing games and working on beautification projects on a campus.
  5. Secure funding support or unused supplies to help youth aging out of care set up their own apartments, receive scholarship assistance, funds for transportation and gift cards for clothing.
  6. Capital improvements for our campuses, including renovations to meet the needs of our changing client population and refurbishments to make our facilities warm, welcoming and as trauma-sensitive as possible.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

Our work can be summed up in two phrases, “partnering to transform” and “demonstrating leadership and positive impact.” These phrases summarize our strategic objectives established to reaffirm our commitment to reducing trauma and strengthening children, families and the communities in which they live.

Our first objective is to partner to transform our communities by reducing the frequency and impact of adverse childhood experiences. In 2014, when we began offering foster care recruitment and licensing services in 30 counties in Northwest Missouri, we committed ourselves to helping more than 1,300 children and youth find safe homes where they can thrive and grow. We are excited to continue to partner with organizations, businesses and — most importantly — caring and loving families in those communities.
 
Our second objective is to demonstrate leadership and positive impact on the health and well-being of our communities. We do this in obvious ways such as by becoming the first organization in Kansas City to achieve Sanctuary certification (a trauma-informed model of care) and by being the first organization to bring Solution-Based Casework (an evidence-based preventative model designed to reduce a youth's length of stay in a residential treatment program, reduce re-entries of children into state custody and increasing domestic permanency) to the state of Missouri. By enabling our staff and leadership to engage in local, regional and national conversations, we seek not only to replicate best practices, but are on the forefront of innovation. Most importantly, our focus on developing leaders and advocates will help us create and sustain long-term impact. 
 
As a leading human social service organization, we continue to find innovative ways to expand our capacity to serve youth and families through more efficient and effective operations. At the same time, we know that continual investment in a robust infrastructure is important and vital to our ability to achieve our mission and goals in the future.

Programs
Description

Awarded by the State of Missouri in June 2005, foster care case management is designed to protect children from abuse and neglect, as well as to increase the number of foster parents, adoptive parents and foster care resources in Jackson, Cass, and Johnson counties in Missouri. Foster care and adoption services are provided to approximately 250 kids each year.

A grant from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption allows for two full-time adoption recruiters to work towards permanency for children and sibling groups currently in foster care.

Cornerstones of Care was awarded a Nurse Case Management contract from the State of Missouri to manage the physical and mental health care needs of Jackson County children in state custody. The contract provides nurse and medical consultation for over 1,000 children in care at any given time. 

Cornerstones of Care also recruits and licenses hundreds of foster homes each year in the 30-county NW Missouri region.

Short-Term Success

Short-term success is measured by the extent to which programs meet contractual outcome goals. Monitoring these goals ensures the safety of children in foster placements and the efficacy of permanent placement. Examples of outcomes include:

  • 92% will not re-enter care within 12 months of permanency.
  • 99% of foster placements will not have substantiated child abuse/neglect reports with the alternative caregiver listed as the perpetrator.
  • 28% of children will find permanent placements.
Long-Term Success

This program operates under a performance-based contract which requires close monitoring of outcomes. The long term outcome is to achieve permanent living situations for 28% of our children, which includes reunification, adoption or guardianship.

Program Success Monitored By Progress is monitored by statistical reporting and review of the above outcomes and other internal measurements monthly by senior management and state contract oversight. 
Examples of Program Success

All program goals were met or exceeded in the prior contract year: 93% of children did not re-enter care, 43% of children were placed in permanent living situations, 100% of placements were safe for children, and 180 children were placed in permanent homes.

Description

Education services include our three day treatment programs and our school-based support services known as BIST (Behavior Intervention Support Team).

Our day treatment programs, established nearly 40 years ago, help meet the needs of children in our own residential treatment facilities, and those from our public school partners. Children from 23 school districts and 1 charter school come to our schools to receive personalized academic services that supports the unique behavioral or mental health challenges our students have.  


BIST is an outreach program that provides training and support to teachers, administrators, and staff in hundreds of schools throughout the Midwest. BIST helps schools decrease disruptive behavior, increase teaching time, provide relief for parents, and facilitate life-long changes in children. Our goal is to increase teaching time and help students make life changes.

Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success

By the end of a child's time in the day treatment programs, Cornerstones of Care expects that they will have shown improvement in math and reading skills, meet the goals of their IEP (Individualized Education Plan), have attendance of 90% or better, and meet the goals of their behavioral treatment plan.

Long-Term Success
Children experience success in the classroom and either successfully return to their home school at the same grade, or they graduate with a high school diploma from our day treatment schools.
Program Success Monitored By

Cornerstones of Care monitors performance by students in the day treatment school through grades, attendance tracking, and performance monitoring surveys with staff, students and parents.

Examples of Program Success
Students in our Day Treatment Programs are making progress toward their educational goals. At Ozanam School, 100% of students who were high school seniors graduated during the 2016-2017 school year. For the Gillis School, 80.43% of students met or made progress on a majority of goals in their (IEP). It should be noted that 80% of students are below grade level when they enter our day treatment programs. 
Description

The Cornerstones of Care Mental and Behavioral Health Services focus on providing children, young adults and families the comprehensive treatment and support they need to heal and thrive. These services include:

  • Residential Treatment on 2 of our Campuses. We offer trauma-informed campus living and therapeutic programming for children and young adults ages 4 to 18. Often those in our residential programs have experienced abuse, neglect and mental health disorders in their lives and face challenges that require temporary out-of-home care.
  • Outpatient Counseling. We can help our clients address a wide variety of mental health issues and concerns. Outpatient counseling allows individuals to maintain a regular commitment to family, work and educational responsibilities throughout their treatment.
  • Substance Abuse Treatment. We provide substance abuse treatment services to youth, often in residential treatment, who struggle with abuse of medication, alcohol and drugs.

Program is linked to organization's mssion Yes
Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success

Short term success includes decreases in problem behaviors and improvements in functioning in the home and family. Problem behaviors might include self-harming behaviors, truancy, violence toward others, contact with the police or judicial system, or substance use. Improvements in functioning looks at a youth’s ability to accept responsibility for their actions, express feelings appropriately, and get along with peers and adults outside the family.

Long-Term Success

Long-term success means that children in residential care will successfully transition to a home with a family in the community, either through foster care, adoption or family reunification. Other long-term success is that clients in outpatient services will experience improvement in their family interactions, home life and mental health stability.

Program Success Monitored By

A treatment team consisting of the child, family members to the degree they are involved, therapist and case manager meet on a regular basis to review progress to behavioral goals. At program admission, a baseline assessment is completed for each client. When the client discharges from the program, a discharge assessment is completed that considers the global progress toward treatment goals, Individual Education Plan goals (for students in our Day Treatment Program), as well as the degree to which predetermined behavioral markers have increased or decreased. Data is entered by program staff into our Electronic Health Record called myAvatar. Initial assessments, any follow-up assessments, and discharge assessment data and service data for each client is maintained in the EHR. Performance Excellence Staff aggregate and analyze the data for periodic (either monthly or quarterly) review with the program leaders.

Examples of Program Success

On the Gillis Campus, lengths of stay for youth in residential care have decreased by 40% down to approximately 4-5 months on average, which is a significant source of pride in that we are able to find a supportive home in the community for youth who would otherwise be living in a residential facility for over 2 years.

In addition, regarding outpatient services, 96% of clients report that the services they receive have helped them.
