For Your Safety - And Our Piece Of Mind - Handyman Solutions And The Aging In Place Store Proudly Participate In Missouri's Family Care Safety Registry (FCSR)

For Your Safety

How the Registry Works

Missouri's Family Care Safety Registry (FCSR) was established by law to promote family and community safety. The registry helps to protect children, seniors, and the disabled by providing background information on workers. Families and employers can call the registry's toll-free line to request background information on registered child care, elder care, and personal care workers or to request licensure status information on licensed child care and elder care providers. This service is intended to provide information to help families and employers make informed decisions when hiring employees to work with children, the elderly, and the disabled.

The Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) created the data systems maintained by the State Highway Patrol, Department of Social Services, Department of Mental Health, and various units within the Department of Health and Senior Services. The implementation of the FCSR helps ensure that persons caring for children, seniors, or physically or mentally disabled individuals can be screened for employment purposes. The law requires that every child care and elder care worker hired on or after January 1, 2001, and every personal care worker hired on or after January 1, 2002 to register.

Those wishing to hire a child care, elder care or personal care worker may contact the Registry via the toll-free call center, by submission of a signed form, or by approved Internet access, to obtain background screening information about a caregiver, which includes:

  • State criminal history records maintained by the Missouri State Highway Patrol
  • Sex Offender Registry maintained by the Missouri State Highway Patrol
  • Child abuse/neglect records maintained by the Missouri Department of Social Services
  • The employee disqualification list maintained by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services
  • The employee disqualification registry maintained by the Missouri Department of Mental Health
  • Child-care facility licensure records maintained by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services
  • Foster parent licensure records maintained by the Missouri Department of Social Services
