Welcoming All Children in Need
Situations leading to a child's placement are often complicated. Fortunately, state government agencies and processes are in place to ensure that all children, no matter how complicated their circumstances might be, can receive the help they need to be protected and nurtured appropriately.
Children are referred to the Mission by way of the Department of Community Based Services (DCBS), which is under the Protection and Permanency wing of the state's Cabinet for Families and Children, or through the Court Designated Worker (CDW) program, which is part of the Juvenile Services division within the Kentucky Department of Justice.
