WHAT WE DO
Our agency focuses on primary prevention through community awareness efforts, and by providing an array of programs and services to give parents the knowledge and resources they need to be successful.
ADOPTION RESOURCE PROGRAM
There are currently too many children in the state of Kentucky in out of home care. By making these children our top priority, we are committed to finding forever families who will be able to provide them with the love and nurturing they will need to become thriving individuals later in life.

As part of our mission to prevent child abuse, FEC is proud to facilitate a collaborative effort with regional agencies, local businesses, and the faith-based community to keep kids safe by offering trainings, support, resources, and more.

LITTLE LEARNERS PROGRAM
The Little Learners Program utilizes the Parents as Teachers curriculum to empower parents to be their child’s first and best teacher. Our certified educators do this through monthly home visits with families, developmental screenings, milestones, and referrals to other necessary services.

PARENT ENGAGEMENT MEETINGS
Parent Engagement Meetings (PEM) are to engage families with students age 5-11 to help define barriers to attendance, identify strengths and needs, develop a plan of action, and strive to prevent the family from being unnecessarily involved in the child welfare system. The goal is to PREVENT educational neglect through these Parent Engagement Meetings and facilitate collaboration among local agencies to connect families with resources. Learn more about PEM.
