“The Residential Treatment Program annually serves 70 of the most abused children in Kentucky ages 5-15. The children have experienced severe emotional, physical or sexual abuse, and/or neglect. It was established in 1980, and serves girls and boys referred from the Kentucky Cabinet for Families and Children who are wards of the state. The children have special needs which may be emotional, behavioral, medical, intellectual or developmental in nature. Children live at St. Joe’s for about a year in order to receive intensive therapy to help them be prepared to move to “forever families” – mostly foster care/adoptive homes.” (SOURCE: http://www.sjkids.org/resident_faqs.php)
