Foster Families and Jordan Valley

When you become a foster/resource parent, you pledge to give a safe and loving home to a child who has been through trauma and loss. At Jordan Valley, we pledge to stand by you and help make caring for the children in your home and your family easier.

Our Pledge to
Foster Parents

Our team helps you navigate paperwork, wellness checks and physicals. We connect you to the specialists and resources your family needs. You will have a direct phone line and email you can use to reach us. We can also help when you come across obstacles with other aspects of foster care.

When a child in foster care enters your home

We make sure your foster children can get care soon after entering your home.

Step 1

The child enters your home.

This will be a big day with a lot of adjustment. We want to start this journey with you.

Step 2

The child must have a physical within 24 to 72 hours of the time they enter your home.

You can call us at 417-851-1630 or email us at [email protected] to arrange an appointment with a Trauma Informed Physician. You can also walk into any of our clinics during business hours to be seen in our Express Cares.

Step 3

Access all of our services.

Once you establish with one of our providers, your children can now receive any of Jordan Valley’s services, including primary medical, dental, vision and behavioral health care.
