Our state has around 9,000 children who are in the foster care system through no fault of their own. Of these children, on any given day over 650 are legally-free for adoption and are waiting for their forever family. The rest of the children need a loving, safe, and supportive foster family to care for them while they wait to go home to their biological families.
When children age-out of the system at 18 without a family, they are significantly more likely to experience homelessness, crisis pregnancy, unemployment, incarceration, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Trafficking.

I Belong Project
The I Belong Project™ uses high-quality videography to give children in foster care a face and a voice. We bring together child welfare, churches, businesses, and the creatives to make these days a beautiful experience for all of the children who attend. After these videos are edited, we begin recruitment for these children who are available to be adopted and are waiting for their forever family.
Every day we meet more individuals and families who are considering taking the leap to become foster parents. We know you probably have a lot of questions and would need more answers before committing. That’s normal.
Just don’t let the fear of the unknown stop you from moving forward. Contact The Kentucky Foster Adoptive Caregiver Exchange System (Cabinet for Health & Family Services) today. They will walk you through the process, help answer any of your questions along the way, and assist you in determining if becoming a foster parent is a fit for you.
