Description:
FamilyForward 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.

FamilyForward provides short-term medical residential services for children with multiple and/or significant developmental disabilities who are non-ambulatory or have limited mobility. 24-hour nursing care is provided on-site with a staff to client ratio of 1:3 (1:6 during the night) to provide care for children with medical needs, including care for those with a tracheotomy, g-tube, oxygen, and seizures. Services are provided at our site in Saint Louis County (9445 Litzsinger). Length of stay varies depending on the needs of the consumer, but a typical stay is 24 to 72 hours. Services are available on a scheduled basis and in emergency situations.
