The Division of Family Services, based at the Family Care Center facility, provides services to families with priority given to young parents. Our Center uses a strength-based approach to assist parents in their efforts to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency. This is accomplished through a number of services provided and coordinated under one roof.
"For these are our children and we shall profit by, or pay for,
what they become." – James Baldwin
Today the Division of Family Services offers the following services on-site:
Parent Education, Early Child Care, HANDS, and the University of Kentucky Clinic.
