About Us

Saving lives, saving our community.

Since 1883, Family & Children’s Place has been a critical presence in Louisville. For over 135 years, we’ve helped our most vulnerable citizens — children, whose lives we’ve often saved from abuse and neglect. We are here because we believe in this city. We are here because we believe in the promise and power of working together to make life richer; to improve society; to help children become strong again; to defend those in need; and above all, to contribute to the health of our city’s future.
