For over 140 years, The Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children and Youth has served families in need.

We work with children and families who have histories of abuse, neglect, and/or family trauma which has caused emotional and behavioral problems for young people.  

Today we have two campuses and serve more than 800 youth per year through residential and community programs. Our services include:

  1. RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT/EMERGENCY SHELTER
    This live-in therapeutic intervention program helps young people ages 12-17 who have histories of abuse, neglect, abandonment, and/or family trauma that have resulted in emotional and behavioral problems.

  2. INDEPENDENT LIVING
    This  housing program provides financial assistance (rent, clothing, and food) and life and job skill development opportunities for young adults ages 17-21 who are preparing to age out of the social services system.

  3. RESTORE HOPE
    This in-home services program provides crisis intervention aimed at children up to 18 years of age in crisis who would require outside placement and/or institutionalization without intervention.

  4. ALTERNATIVES TO DETENTION
    This program provides community-based services and direct supervision of youth on house arrest with the goal of holding youth accountable for their behaviors and providing services to sustain them in their home.

  5. ADOPTION
    Our Owensboro Mary Kendall Adoption Program is a licensed, private, non-profit organization that aids Kentucky families with both domestic and international adoption.
