St. Joseph Children's Home gives children a home,

and has been doing so since 1849.

St. Joseph Children's Home: Residential Treatment Program, Therapeutic Foster Care and Adoption, Child Development Center


What does “Giving Children a Home” mean?

OUR PROGRAMS

Children in our Residential Treatment Program playing in the Fall leaves.

 

The 48 children who call St. Joe’s home are between the ages of six and 14, and have already been in multiple foster homes. Our goal is to provide the children with the necessary tools to be successful in a family. Through individual treatment plans, intensive therapy, education and a normal home-like environment, children can begin the healing process. It is our mission to provide them with the life skills to move past their trauma and look forward to a brighter future. On average, children live at St. Joe’s about one year, and we have a 94 percent success rate of placing children with families.

A forever family created by our Therapeutic Foster Care and Adoption program.

 

We give children a home by providing a continuum of care through our Foster Care and Adoption Program which serves children from our Residential Program as well as children of all ages, birth to teen. We currently have 50 certified families, and serve 42 children. In 2015, we served more than 200 hundred children in all three programs and created 15 forever adoptive families!

St. Joe’s also boasts one of the best Child Development Center preschool programs in the city, which is offered to children in the general public and is a valued staple of the Crescent Hill community. Standards-based curriculum, an in-house enrichment program for infants through preschool (Music, Movement, Science and Art), and an excellent teacher to student ratio are all benefits of this fabulous program.
