At NBFS our children, families, staff, and community partners are our top priorities. We are aware, like many of you, of COVID-19. We are asking that if you have any contagious or communicable health issues (strep, flu, etc.), then please do not come to our office, contact our staff so we can make arrangements with you or reschedule.
If one of our staff members are scheduled to see you, please inform us of any issues so that we can decide upon the risk of visiting. All of this is due to us working with all ages of children and families and we desire good health and safety.
Please follow the safety precautions issued by the Children's Bureau and our Governor. Should anything further come out advising us of something different, we will keep you posted. Thanks for everything and stay safe.
Our Care Model For Family Services
New Beginnings Family Services provides therapeutic foster care to children who are in the custody of the state and are displaced from their biological family. Many of these children have been the victims of abuse and/or neglect. We also bridge the gap so that anyone can help our foster children. We also offer ways to enhance the lives of those in our community with therapeutic behavioral mental health services.
Be a foster parent
More than 9500 Kentucky children were removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect in 2018.

About New Beginnings Family Services
New Beginnings Family Services is similar to traditional foster care, except they place children who have special needs and require more frequent agency support than a traditional foster care agency. The children may be afraid, confused, angry, or heart-broken being separated from their families. They need a caring environment that will boost their self-esteem, provide encouragement, and most importantly – love.
New Beginnings is dedicated to helping children and foster families succeed. The children served come into state custody because of abuse and neglect, or for other reasons, cannot live with a parent or relative. New Beginnings serves children of all races from birth to age 18 with a wide variety of emotional and behavioral problems.
New Beginnings Family Services spends less than 10% of its annual gross income on administrative costs. Their team has been successful in transitioning children back to a parent or relative with less than 4% requiring a higher level of care.
New Beginnings Family Services has been serving children and families in the bluegrass for 20 years. We are proud to offer two branches of service to the community:
- Foster Care and Adoption Services – providing therapeutic services to foster children, as well as training and certifying therapeutic foster homes.
- Behavioral Health Therapeutic Services – providing in-office and community based therapeutic services to children and their families.
Through the services of New Beginnings, families can acquire the training and assistance to enrich the life of a child and children can receive the support they need. New Beginnings does not discriminate in accepting children, foster care families, or therapeutic service clients into its programs based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
