SAFY of Kentucky's Family Preservation services allow children at risk of abuse and neglect to reside safely with their families as an alternative to foster care. Short-term services including care coordination, parental education and counseling are provided to ensure safety and stabilize the home environment. When children must be removed from the family, our Reunification services address the issues that brought the child and family into the system. Our goal is to return the child to a stable family setting as soon as possible. Learn more >
