Home of the Innocents operates licensed residential facilities for abandoned, abused, neglected, and homeless children. The on-site school program provides educational services to students who reside at the emergency shelter and the residential program.

  • Population Served: Boys and girls, ages 6 to 21
  • Specific Characteristics: Students who are unable to attend a regular classroom in school because of a variety of reasons, including behavior/emotional issues and/or severe medical disabilities
  • Classroom Size: Maximum of 10 students, grades K–12
  • Average Length of Stay: Varies depending upon program
  • The Home of the Innocents school follows the JCPS calendar and includes a summer program.

 

The Weinberg Academy enables children and youth admitted to the emergency shelter from outside Jefferson County to attend school immediately. Students are evaluated and given appropriate school assignments relative to the Kentucky Core Academic Standards. The length of stay may vary from one day to several weeks. As a result, it is the goal of the educational program to keep these students engaged in meaningful academic activities until they return to their home school, are referred to another placement, or are enrolled in a JCPS school.

Special-needs students located in the Pediatric Convalescent Care Unit are given learning opportunities in our on-site Discovery classrooms. These medically fragile students attend school daily, where their medical, physical, and educational needs can be met.

Students are referred by Child Protective Services, the Department for Community Based Services, the Children’s Review Program, the Department of Juvenile Justice, Impact Plus, or Home to Home.
