Kentucky ranks #1 in the nation for rates of child abuse and neglect. Without a significant increase in financial support, we will allow abuse and neglect to cycle its way through Kentucky’s future generations.
Please join us in making sure our legislators know this urgent need. Kentucky’s state social workers and children’s homes need significant resources to continue serving vulnerable youth. There is a historic budget surplus and unspent federal aid that can be allocated to caring for Kentucky's foster care system. It will take many of us raising our voices to our representatives to make this happen.
