Welcome to Family & Children’s Place

We protect Kentuckiana children, families and communities from abuse, neglect and exploitation, and help them heal.

Through collaborations with the Crimes Against Children Unit of Louisville Metro Police, Child Protective Services, U of L School of Medicine and the Commonwealth’s Attorney office, our Kosair Charities Child Advocacy Center works to help children and families through the trauma of sexual abuse.

We provide individual, family, group and school-based counseling to help trauma-impacted children and families. We supervise parent-child visitations, help families stay in their homes, help first-time parents better engage and bond with their newborns and students improve socially and academically.

Last year we helped nearly 5,000 children and family members regain hope.

If you witness or suspect child abuse, take action immediately. Call the Kentucky Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-752-6200 or the Indiana Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-800-5556.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

It is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families.

la 026During the month, Family & Children’s Place will be sharing child abuse and neglect prevention awareness strategies, ideas and activities on our website, Facebook and Twitter. We encourage you to engage as well, to commit to prevent child abuse.


Speak up and be the voice that helps end child abuse forever.


Photo galleries

We’ve added photo galleries to the website, collections of photographs taken at Family & Children’s Place-sponsored events, such as our Building Brighter Futures Breakfasts or the Rally to End Child Abuse. We have two albums posted at this time, but will continue to add more as we continue our journey to end child violence, abuse and neglect in Greater Louisville and Southern Indiana.
