Family Care Safety Registry

Family Care Safety Registry Logo

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.  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.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - Call Center Closure
The Family Care Safety Registry (FCSR) toll-free call center will be closed on Thursday and Friday, December 25-26, 2014. The call center will reopen the following business day. While FCSR staff will not be available by telephone December 25th or 26th, our online services will not be affected. Use the links/menu above to check if someone is already registered with the FCSR, to register with the FCSR online using a credit or debit card, download forms, or use your personal user ID and password to request FCSR screenings online.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - Processing Fee Increase
Due to a change in the contract with the company that processes online debit and credit card fee payments, the processing fee for an online FCSR registration will increase to $1.25 effective December 29, 2014.


Eligible employers that prefer to request background screenings by submitting a paper form to the FCSR can find the most current version here. Forms are processed in the order received.

In order to minimize your waiting time, the FCSR encourages the use of online registration for credit or debit card users, and online background screening for eligible employers.
