I am a past board member and cannot say enough good things about this agency. The staff is amazing, the programs meet critical needs that very few others provide, and many clients come back to tell stories of success after therapy. I have referred friends to this agency and believe it is a jewell in our non-profit community.

Family and Children's Place is a Louisville non-profit agency that serves families in Kentuckiana that experience abuse, particularly child sexual abuse. This agency is raising the bar for first-response services for children who report sexual abuse in Kentucky! By establishing a world class co-located Child Advocacy Center in Louisville, Kentucky, the agency is putting Kentucky on the map as a leader in the fight against child abuse. There are several essential services under one roof: Family and Children's Place offers forensic interviewing (held to the highest standard and best practice models), medical examinations to treat for injury or infection, and offices for local law enforcement and the Crimes Against Children unit. Having all these offices in one location minimizes the risks that children face when they report abuse. A victim's story can be told once and an immediate response can be made to protect the child and stop the abuse. They also provide ongoing services to families that seek the assistance of Family and Children's Place such as counseling and other services designed to help families heal, stabilize and recover.

This organization has a heart for the future of our children and our community! Keep up the good work!
