Grants and Contracts Details

Description

Adoption Support for Kentucky Adoption Support for Kentucky (A.S.K.) specializes in the utilization of support groups to offer pre and post-adoptive support and services to resource parents. ASK provides the opportunity to share resources, suggestions, frustrations and successes with those who share the unique life experience of adoption. ASK strives to prevent pre-adoptive disruptions and post-adoptive dissolutions through peer support and training. ASK provides peer-led adoption support group meetings throughout the Commonwealth. Support and information are also provided by phone, e-mail or through one-on-one meetings with local Adoptive Parent Liaisons. Adoption is a very unique experience and A.S.K. exists to provide a continuum of proactive advocacy, ongoing support, and specialized training to foster and adoptive families. Any adoptive family may be a part of A.S.K. Some who attend support group meetings adopted years ago, while others may have recently formed their Forever Family. Others who attend are caring for the child of a relative or are foster parents considering adoption. A.S.K. is proud to offer its services to families formed through state, private, relative or international adoption; as well as to resource parents and relative caregivers. Goal: ASK strives to prevent pre-adoptive disruptions and post-adoptive dissolutions through peer support and training.
