Families often face tremendous challenges that are difficult to overcome unless they have support from others. Too often, they don’t know where to turn.
Thriving Families Program
KVC Kentucky is announcing a new program called Thriving Families that will provide a path toward hope and healing for families experiencing challenges. It gives you the opportunity to play a critical role in improving the lives of a family who needs compassion and and some additional support so that they can thrive to their full potential.
How Does It Work?
You provide temporary care for a family’s child, typically for a month. During this time, a KVC professional visits your home to help the child build skills and resilience. Meanwhile, the child’s family also receives therapeutic services from KVC. By being a Thriving Families Resource Caregiver, you are alleviating a family’s stress by giving them invaluable time to overcome hardships.
“The KVC family is committed to help strengthen families. Our Thriving Families program is designed to help families in their communities grow and heal with the assistance of therapeutic services and supports while avoiding alternative placements like crisis stabilization or system involvement. This program will empower individuals and families daily to create positive changes in their lives.”
