The Mission of the Diocesan Catholic Children's Home is to provide support and treatment services to children and families thereby expressing God's love.
We are a residential treatment facility that traces its roots to the creation of St. John's Orphanage in 1848. Our focus is to mend the lives of children who have been removed from their families by the state. We now serve over 60 youth in various stages of our continuum of care, i.e. crisis intervention, residential treatment, foster care and eventually the permanency of adoption. All children are placed in our care by the State of Kentucky.
We serve children of all faiths. Each of them comes from disadvantaged home situations. Most have been victims of some type of abuse at the hands of family members. Our residents are male and female, between the ages of 6 and 14. At this time, 15% of our residents are minorities (African-American or bi-racial)
