Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky offers both residential treatment and community-based services to abused, neglected, and at-risk youth. CHNK’s Residential Treatment program serves boys between the ages of 7 and 17 who have been removed from their own homes by the state of Kentucky due to abuse and neglect. At any given time, CHNK has 40 boys living on one of its two campuses (one in Covington and the other in Burlington). The boys live at the Home for 6-8 months on average.
The community-based Champions program serves youth (both male and female) in grades 6-12 who are at risk of becoming juvenile status offenders. CHNK partners with local school districts and law enforcement to have a therapeutic intervention before the student ends up in secure detention for non-violent offenses (like skipping school or being late for school). Last year, nearly 700 children and families received support from the Home.
Of the boys discharged from the residential treatment program during fiscal year 2013, 80% of them were successful discharges – the child entered foster care, went into the custody of a relative or other guardian, etc. Of the 120 students who took part in Champions, 86% successfully completed the program and 99% of participating families reported better family functioning as a result of the program.
