DCCH Program Helps Young Adults

Woman watering plant

A natural extension of our Therapeutic Foster Care Program, DCCH started its Independent Living Program to assist young adults who have aged out of a traditional foster placement.

We can help with finding affordable housing, reliable transportation, continuing education, and more. Every young adult works with a case manager and therapist to guide them along their journey. Our team assists by helping remove barriers and guaranteeing success.

Local Girl Scout Troop Changes Lives

Girl Scouts earn Silver Award

A local NKY Girl Scouts troop has been partnering with DCCH's Foster Care Program while earning their prestigious Silver Award.

The girls were in the thick of planning when COVID hit. Like good troopers, they did not give up but re-strategized their project. The final portion is wrapping up with a unique message highlighting the need for more foster and adoptive parents. The girls designed four different bookmarks, each with a foster care message and printed 1,000 copies. With the help of other NKY Girl Scout troops, the bookmarks will be distributed across our region by including them in local cookie deliveries.

Watch the story on Fox 19.

Troop 2173 really exemplifies the Scouting spirit, and DCCH is so grateful for their partnership! We encourage everyone to return the gift by purchasing a box (or two) of cookies!

Testimonials

Just keep doing what you’re doing because you guys are saving lives—not just the kids, but the families too!

I can truly say that DCCH is the best facility in Kentucky to serve kids. I can not thank you guys enough.

I wanted to take a minute to share with you how AWESOME Kelly Lightner (Therapy Center Therapist) has been to our family. Kelly is responsive and supportive of us as we navigate our daughter’s big emotions, always able to provide the right words and holds space in the hard times. Our daughter considers Kelly a friend.
