St. Joe’s Foster Care Info Sessions


Being a supportive presence for our St. Joe’s kids is what they need to be successful in every part of their life. Learn about the process of becoming certified as a foster parent or respite provider by attending our informational meetings held the first Tuesday of every month at 5:45 p.m. at St. Joseph Children’s Home (2823 Frankfort Avenue). No commitments are necessary but open hearts and minds are encouraged!

RSVP is required. Send an email to Lisa Barber-Atwell at info@sjkids.org and put “FC Info Session” in the subject line to hold your spot. For questions or concerns, email info@sjkids.org or call (502) 893-0241. Virtual options are also available. Email us to schedule a time.
