  • Volunteer! We have plenty of opportunities for individual or group volunteers, both of whom play a vital role in achieving our mission. By spending quality time with our youth, tutors and mentors serve as inspiring role models. Through landscaping and painting projects, community groups help us create comfortable environments for our children. Whether volunteering as an individual or with a group, our volunteer specialist will match you with an opportunity that fits your schedule and interests.
  • Donate! Financial gifts allow us to continue to grow our programs and services in order to provide the needed support for the children and families in our care. Donations can be made toward a specific campus, program or you can allow us to determine how your donation can best serve our evolving needs. You are welcome to donate online (, over the phone (816-508-1704), or via mail (300 E 36th St, KCMO 64111).
  • In-Kind! We partner with the community to provide as many supplies and resources as possible to help the children and families in our programs reduce barriers and challenges. The following needs are ongoing throughout the year: hygiene supplies, socks and underwear, towels, pillows/pillow cases, and baby and toddler items. As in any home environment, we also have various seasonal needs throughout the year such as arts and craft supplies, swimsuits and sunscreen, school supplies and uniforms and of course holiday Sponsor-A-Youth and birthday gifts!

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
In 2018, our accomplishments include:
Mental Health Screenings in Grandview Schools
More than 30,000 Jackson County citizens are impacted by mental health challenges. Thanks to funding from the Jackson County Children’s Services Fund, we launched mental health screenings in five schools in Grandview, Mo., in 2018. We now conduct voluntary school-based social and emotional health screenings to 3rd—5th graders. When students are identified as having an elevated mental health risk, we then provide ongoing support and resources to the student and their families to keep them safe and healthy.
Treatment Foster Care Now in St. Louis
We now train and support individuals and families in St. Louis to provide treatment foster care. Treatment foster care is our highest level of care for youth who have experienced significant trauma. Our treatment foster parents receive specialized training and 24/7 support as they facilitate safe, loving environments for these youth to heal and recover.
Solution-Based Casework Comes to Missouri
We were excited to be the first organization to bring Solution-Based Casework® (SBC) to Missouri. SBC is an evidence-based preventative model specifically designed to reduce lengths of stay for youth in residential treatment, and reduce re-entries of children into state custody by increasing domestic permanency.
Our goals in 2019 include our “4 Big Things”:
  1. Improve customer experience through organization-wide focus on client safety and quality of services through COA re-accreditation and Sanctuary recertification.
  2. Organization-wide focus on a workforce that is stable, happy in their jobs and engaged in their organization through salary increases tied to merit and a 401(K) match.
  3. Successful implementation of new programs: Kansas Child Welfare, Missouri Intensive Family Services & Homeroom Health, an integrated pediatric health center.
  4. Strengthen Community Engagement through fundraising, board development and establishing community councils.
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.
Denise Cross, President and Chief Executive Officer

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 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.
  • 100% 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.


Education services include our Day Treatment Program and our Behavior Intervention Support Team Program (BIST).

Our Day Treatment Program, established nearly 40 years ago, is provided on our Gillis and Ozanam Campuses in Kansas City, MO, and in the Blue Springs MO School District. The program helps to meet the needs of students referred from 23 school districts and those in our Residential Treatment Program. Students receive individualized therapeutic and academic services that support 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 to change the school culture at the building and district level to decrease disruptive behavior, increase teaching time and facilitate life-long changes in children.

Short-Term Success
Our Day Treatment Program provides a safe setting where students with behavioral and learning challenges can catch up in their studies and learn behavioral skills to de-escalate in times of stress. Teachers, therapists, case managers and Youth Behavioral Specialists work together with the student to develop academic and behavioral goals. Treatment plans are adjusted as progress is made.
Our Behavior Intervention Support Team visits educators in their school buildings, assisting in Vision Teams to create a unique school-wide behavior plan to improve school climate. Teachers learn to implement classroom management strategies that pre-empt individual students from acting out and help them cope with difficult emotions that are at the root of their disruptive behaviors. At the building and district levels, a code of conduct is adopted. Students learn new strategies that give them responsibility for their behavior and the tools to make things right.
Long-Term Success For our Day Treatment Program, students show academic growth and progress toward behavioral goals in the classroom. They maintain progress for 18 weeks to successfully transition back to public school. Long-term success includes high school graduation for seniors as appropriate. For our BIST Program, teaching strategies and behavioral guidelines support a safe school environment that promotes learning for everyone.
Program Success Monitored By
In our Day Treatment Program, students are assessed in Reading and Math by the STAR assessment tool. STAR measures progress by administering a pre -and post-test. Students are also monitored by progress toward goals in their Individual Education Program as determined by their referring school district. Academic growth is also recorded as grades and credits awarded per quarter. Behavioral growth is measured on daily point sheets and behavior referral forms. This progress is aggregated and shared quarterly with parents and school districts as well as with students on their report cards.
Success of our BIST Program is measured by our clients' satisfaction with our services.
Examples of Program Success
The day-treatment program graduated 100% of the seniors that attended in SY 16-17 and SY 17-18. Academic progress includes: 70% of students showed growth in Reading and Math in the first semester SY 18-19; 80% of students made progress on their IEP goals; 65% made progress toward their behavioral goals and are using de-escalation strategies successfully.
Typically, 80% of our high school students make the A/B honor roll each quarter. At least one student per classroom meets criterion to return to school each semester. High school students that come to us with credit problems are given the chance to catch up and graduate with their cohort.
The BIST Program is active in over 300 schools in five states: Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, and Colorado.

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.

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.
