About Children’s Home Society

Children’s Home Society of Missouri (CHS) has been a leader in providing children with a permanent, safe and loving home since 1891. Founders Herman Bollman and Reverend C.W. Williams were pioneers in the emerging field of child welfare and envisioned a society that would provide homes for neglected and abused children.

Our Mission…Children’s Home Society is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children in need.

CHS provides a full spectrum of services for children in need of a permanent home. Services include:

  • Pregnancy counseling, infant placements, assistance for families pursuing international adoptions and intensive training and support for families able to adopt children presently in foster care
  • Education and mental health counseling services to further support the long term needs of families formed through adoption
  • Short and long term care for children with significant developmental disabilities and medical needs; services include both long-term residential care and short-term stays which provide much needed respite for families and care givers
