Read our latest newsletter for a celebration of the newest “forever families” created by our Foster Care and Adoption Program, recent activities our Residential children have participated in, the success of our Child Development Center, and one of our award-winning volunteers.

2017 has been a great year for St. Joe's kids as we have celebrated 10 adoptions so far this year with more on the way! 🎉🏡💞

Without the courage and love from our foster parents like the Dawkins family (see pictured), Kentucky's most abused and neglected children would be left without a home.
