St. Joe’s Therapeutic Foster Care and Adoption is growing at a rapid pace as more children are in need of homes than ever before. With over 8,500 children in Kentucky’s foster care system, St. Joe’s has one of the highest adoption rates among comparable foster care programs in Kentucky. St. Joe’s is proud to celebrate 16 adoptions so far this year! This November, St. Joe’s kids and families are celebrating National Adoption Month, an initiative sponsored by the Children’s Bureau in partnership with Child Welfare Information Gateway and AdoptUSKids. The emphasis this year is on strengthening teen adoptions by building an effective response system for prospective adoptive families that is part of a wider continuum of support services.
