Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
You are not required to pay anything to have your child receive help at Show-Me. All expenses are 100% privately funded by donors who want to ensure there is ALWAYS a place for the children who need it.
How can these services be free (what is the catch)?
No catch, Show-Me is simply the result of faith in action. We know many families are caught in a crisis they never expected. In order that the children don’t become additional casualties, we are compelled by Christ to provide a place to rescue and restore these young lives.
Can I visit?
Yes! We want any family member who is a healthy influence to have the opportunity to maintain contact with the child at Show-Me as outlined in our visitation guidelines.
How long can my child stay?
Many of the children placed will “grow up” here because their families believe this is the best place for them to find success. We are committed to prepare them for the adult phase of their lives, and support them as they make that transition.
What is the custody arrangement?
Show-Me does NOT take legal custody of the children in our placement. We have a notarized Power of Attorney agreement (Temporary Delegation of Powers) with the parent/guardian only to allow us to care for the needs of the child. This agreement can be released at any time.
