Kentucky Partnership for Families and Children, Inc.'s (KPFC) vision is to improve the quality of life for children, youth, and young adults facing emotional, social, and behavioral challenges and to encourage the healthy functioning of their families through education, advocacy and outreach. As the family organization in Kentucky, KPFC collaborates with many state-level systems to build a strong "family-driven" and "youth-guided" system of care.
Through this next grant cycle, KPFC will continue to strengthen organizational relationships by collaborating with a multittude of public agencies and private organizations across the state on committees, projects, and collaboratives.
KPFC will teach leadership skills among youth that have SED and their families through trainings across the state, a quarterly newsletter, a resource request line, referrals to support groups, and the annual Youth/Parent Leadership Conference. KPFC will prepare these parent leaders and youth leaders to more fully participate at the community, regional, and state-levels as a family and youth voice to ensure that Kentucky has a "family-driven" and "youth-guided" system of care.
