Our foster care program allows you to make a positive difference in a child’s life by opening your home and heart to a child when they need it the most. By providing a dependable and nurturing environment, you can be part of the healing and helping process. We understand that this can be a challenging task, so we go to great lengths to provide families with resources, trainings and 24 hour access to experienced professionals for ongoing support whenever and wherever the need arises.
KVC Kentucky provides basic foster care as well as these specialized foster care services:
Therapeutic Foster Care – Foster parents provide services to children that have been abused, neglected or have experienced serious traumatic events. These children often have difficulty regulating their emotions and may present challenging behaviors. These children have often had multiple placements and need extra support in making a successful transition to foster care and ultimately a transition into a permanent placement. .
Respite Care– These foster parents serve children who are currently placed in another KVC foster home but need a temporary placement. This service is designed for foster parents to help each other when circumstances in their home temporarily make it difficult to give the child the care that they need.
We understand that the decision to foster a child is complex and important so we work with our Foster Parents at a pace they are comfortable with. KVC KY provides individual consultations in your home or at our offices to provide support in helping you decide if Foster Care is a good fit for you and your family. Together, we carefully identify your strengths and needs and place children in your home collaboratively to ensure the best chance of success. Ready to learn more?
