certified Ranked as one of the Best Care Centers for Nursing Homes in Jefferson county, KY.

Our Kosair Charities Pediatric Convalescent Center (KCPCC) cares for children who are medically fragile. These children have needs that require 24-hour skilled care; some are dependent on ventilators and feeding tubes, are in wheelchairs and have limited verbal communication abilities. Their medical conditions are why they live at the Home. If it were not for Home of the Innocents, these children would have to grow up in a hospital. The KCPCC cares for children from birth to age 21 and can accommodate 76 children. Crisis Care and Residential Treatment Services provide emergency and long-term shelter and treatment, crisis intervention, and respite services for children and adolescents ages birth to 18 who require emergency care because of abuse, neglect, abandonment or family crisis. There is no time limit on the length of stay. Children are accepted into the facility 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – even in the middle of the night. The CKC’s licensed residential capacity is 95. Transition to Independence Program (TIP) is a pre-Independent Living curriculum for older adolescents as well as pregnant and parenting teens residing in the ChildKind Center. TIP provides youth the opportunity to learn practical skills needed to be successful in family life, school, the workplace and in securing stable housing. Counselors provide guidance through a series of life skills programs, group meetings and individual counseling . Aftercare and Follow-up Services assist homeless young adults with integration into the community. Young adults, ages 18-24, may come from other programs within the agency or other systems including state foster care, emergency shelters, or the streets. Services include supervised apartments and comprehensive case management. The program emphasizes employment, education, and life skills development. Community Based Services (CBS) are in-home programs offering therapeutic support for at-risk families and severely emotionally disturbed children and their families to decrease or minimize the child’s risk of imminent hospitalization or out-of-home placement. The Home’s Autism Services Program seeks to address problematic behaviors and skill deficits, as well as help facilitate healthy, cohesive, thriving families who have learned to accept, love and understand their child. The program primarily utilizes Applied Behavioral Analysis therapy in working with children. This is the most widely recognized form of autism therapy in terms of effectiveness, including by the Surgeon General of the United States. Therapeutic Loving foster Care (TLC) is a family-based alternative to institutional treatment for children with serious emotional and behavioral conditions. Services include 24-hour on-call intervention and foster care respite services. TLC focuses on creating "forever families" through adoption. Home of the Innocents also provides the following specialized services: Project Keepsafe is an innovative program offering parents suffering from addictions and/or mental or physical illness the opportunity to voluntarily place their children at the Home, so the parent(s) may receive treatment they desperately need to save their family. Safe Exchange is a much-needed community service which lets divorced or separated parents with a history of domestic violence use the Home as a safe and neutral site for regular custody exchanges, so children can be spared witnessing ongoing strife. The Home operates the program at the request of Louisville Metro Government and the courts. Parents Acquiring Skills & Strength (PASS) offers self-help, parent education and support groups utilizing the evidence-based "Nurturing Parenting Programs" curriculum to families involved with Child Protective Services. Open Arms Children's Health is an integrated health care facility offering pediatric medical, dental, hearing, vision and pharmacy under one roof. Open Arms Children’s Health’s mission is to provide compassionate care for kids and respectful support for families. Open Arms specifically targets children with special needs, low-income families and children in foster care, but is open to all children from Kentucky and Indiana. Open Arms clinical professionals are specially trained to meet the complex needs of our target populations, and can often address multiple issues across disciplines in a same-day visit. Kay and Jim Morrissey Advanced Therapy Center (ATC) features an innovative saltwater therapy pool and large therapy gym. The therapy pool is fully accessible for individuals with special needs and is equipped with a chair/stretcher-lift, entry ramp, exercise benches and specialized floatation devices. The pool uses a state-of-the-art UV filter and is heated to 92 degrees for enhanced therapeutic benefit. The ATC offers innovative aquatic therapy opportunities for residents and clients of the Home as well as classes for individuals of all ages from the community. Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Academy is a three-classroom schoolhouse that serves children in the Home’s care. Children’s classroom programming is administered and provided by Jefferson County Public Schools. Outside the school day, this facility provides essential training and meeting space to meet the needs of Home of the Innocents’ programming and external community groups.

The facility accepts Medicare and Medicaid. Home Of The Innocents is a licensed care provider with the State of Kentucky. The Kentucky Department of Aging and Independent Living provides a list of registered care providers in Kentucky.
