The event directly benefits New Beginnings Family Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) that benefits therapeutic foster children across the state of Kentucky. Since 2000, New Beginnings has directly affected the lives of thousands of children across the commonwealth through New Beginnings Family Services, a therapeutic foster care agency.
New Beginnings Family Services’ mission is an ongoing effort towards “Empowering individuals and families to assist them with developing enriched lives and a stronger community”.
Children who enter therapeutic foster care bring with them special needs, most importantly, the need for a stable family life. These children, infants to age 18, are often the victims of abuse, neglect of abandonment. As a result, they may suffer from emotional, behavioral or developmental problems.
Through the services of New Beginnings, families can acquire the training and assistance to enrich the life of a child, and children can receive the support they need. New Beginnings does not discriminate in accepting children or foster care families into its program based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin or disability.
New Beginnings Family Services is a therapeutic foster and adoption care agency. We are similar to traditional foster care, except we place children who have special needs and require more frequent agency support than a traditional foster care agency. They may be afraid, confused, angry, or heart-broken being separated from their families. They need a caring environment that will boost their self-esteem, provide encouragement and most importantly – love. We train individuals and families to become foster parents and place Kentucky’s abused and neglect children in the best matched home. Once a match is made, New Beginnings staff is there every step of the way to support, encourage and advocate for the parent and child’s best interest.
Our agency is dedicated to helping children and foster families succeed. The children we serve come into state custody due to abuse and neglect of for other reasons cannot live with a parent or relative. New Beginnings serves children of all races from birth to age 18 with a wide variety of emotional and behavioral problems. New Beginnings Family Services spends less than 10 % of our annual gross income on administrative costs. Our team has been successful in transitioning children back to a parent or relative with less than 4 % requiring a higher level of care.
