Strengthening Children and Families

KVC Kentucky is no longer providing foster care services. We will continue to focus our efforts on other vital initiatives, such as strengthening and supporting the wellbeing and vitality of Kentucky’s children, families, and communities through our high-quality, impactful services designed to empower clients by building on their unique strengths.

At KVC Kentucky, we believe in the power of connection. 

We understand that parents love their children and kids want to be with their families. With the help of our professionals, families can create a safe, loving environment by forming new, healthy patterns of interaction. We are passionate about helping families heal generational trauma. That is why we provide family strengthening programsprevention programs, in-home behavioral health treatments, youth substance use treatments, and other family-related services to over 14,000 children and families in 8 regions, with the goal of ensuring their safety, permanency, and wellbeing. 

We partner with many organizations that provide foster care services and you can find a complete list of KY agencies here.
