Access to quality healthcare is a right all children deserve.
That’s why Cornerstones of Care has partnered with KC CARE Health Center to launch Homeroom Health, a fully-integrated pediatric health center for infants, children, teens and young adults. As trauma-informed experts in child welfare and behavioral health, we specifically considered the unique challenges of children and teens in foster care when designing Homeroom Health.

Having experienced abuse and neglect, children in foster care have complex medical and psycho-social needs that require consistent, integrated care.
Due to frequent placement moves, children in foster care tend to be underserved, yet over medicated.
Teens in foster care have told us they are tired of telling their story over and over again to new providers.
Homeroom Health provides fully-integrated medical, dental and behavioral healthcare.
Homeroom Health will serve as the child’s primary medication manager.
Homeroom Health will serve as a centralized hub for all healthcare records.
Children in state custody are 4x more likely to be prescribed psychotropic medication than their peers.
With your help, we can change that.
