New website to help families navigate adoption, foster care in Kentucky

A new website will help Kentucky families navigate the foster care and adoption process.

On Wednesday, Kentucky First Lady Glenna Bevin announced the new adopt.ky.gov website.

The website is linked to the Cabinet for Health and Family Services and shows each step to becoming a foster or adoptive parent.

“It’s much more user-friendly, with better organized information, making it easier for families to navigate the foster care system,” First Lady Bevin said.

According to the Department of Community Based Services, there are about 8,100 children in Kentucky foster care and many of them are awaiting adoption.

Along with the website, families can learn more about foster care and adoption by calling 1-800-232-KIDS (5437).
