Boys & Girls Haven helps individuals and families in the enhancement of their emotional, mental, and physical well-being through foster care,
independence readiness, and counseling services.

Boys & Girls Haven Therapeutic Foster Care consists of a supportive network of foster homes offering kids the love and stability of a family. For many of our children, this is their first experience in a consistent and safe home – their first chance to have a childhood.
We believe that every child deserves to grow up in a safe and healthy environment they can call home. Families need strong support too. Boys & Girls Haven Therapeutic Foster Care provides foster parents with great training and is backed by the best resources in the field.

Requirements to become a foster parent

You'll still have support and guidance when you receive a foster placement. Kentucky has continued training and can connect new foster parents with experienced families through the Foster Parent Mentor Program.

Having access to an experienced foster family is invaluable. You'll be able to connect with other adults who have advice and can provide coaching to make your parenting journey easier.

Your local child-placing agency is one of your best sources of information and foster parenting services.

Nonprofit child welfare organizations approved by the state recruit resource parents, provide resources, and offer training and general support. When you attend the informational orientation and parent training, you'll receive books and resources that tell you more about the many available foster parent support groups.

The people here do their best. I love them to death and couldn't have gotten this far without them. I'll always be grateful for their support and kindness.
The group homes were stuffy during the pandemic but not awful.
Their Pre-IL program is well managed but has lost a few amazing staff lately. While the effects on the program are mostly unknown to me I do know that these staff have moved on to bigger and better things and new people have stepped up.

To any kid going in, keep your head on your shoulders. You don't have to like it for it to be safe. If you don't feel safe, make sure ALL the staff know.
To anyone else, be compassionate. People can be rough around the edges but most the people I met here where pretty cool.
