We are Key Assets Kentucky, a behavioral health and child caring company based in Central Kentucky.
Key Assets â€“ The Childrenâ€™s Services provider, part of the founder led Core Assets Group, is an international group of companies delivering flexible children and family social services solutions.
We are a social enterprise working in Europe, North America and Australasia, our group offers a range of innovative, client-centered services to government and non-government partners. Our range of services includes; out of home care (foster care, Kinship Care, and Residential Care), intensive family support services, visitation and reunification, disability support services, therapeutic & behavioral health services, case management, consulting, and aftercare services..
Founded in 1994 by Jim Cockburn and Jan Rees, our journey began in a small office in Bromsgrove, West Midlands, UK where we established our commitment to providing high qualityÂ fostering servicesÂ for local public child welfare agencies and better outcomes for children in the foster care system.
As our reputation grew, so did we. We expanded throughout England, Northern Ireland and Scotland to eventually become the UKâ€™s largest Independent Fostering Agency (IFA).
But thatâ€™s not all. As our fostering services blossomed we took the opportunity to apply the knowledge and the skills weâ€™d gained, globally â€“ expanding our services into America, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand and Sweden.
Although we were founded in fostering, weâ€™ve become so much more. Our expansion intoÂ services for children and familiesÂ andÂ consultancy and resourcingÂ for the social care sector has helped us make a difference on a wider scale, both in the UK and internationally.
And because weâ€™re founder-led we never lose sight of what made us begin our journey back in 1994. Weâ€™ve never stopped wanting more for children, families and communities and thatâ€™s why weâ€™re proud of our history and excited about our future.
Weâ€™re committed to making a positive and lasting difference to the lives of children and families, this vision and commitment reaches across Europe, South East Asia, Australasia and North America.
Although we were founded in fostering, weâ€™ve become so much more. Our expansion intoÂ services for children and familiesÂ andÂ consultancy and resourcingÂ for the social care sector has helped us make a difference on a wider scale.
Along the way weâ€™ve developed ground breaking services, shared best practice across our international communities and continued to develop our knowledge and practice wisdom.Â Team ParentingÂ®Â ourÂ approach thatâ€™s been at the heart of our work with foster care from the veryÂ beginningÂ is also influencing the shape of our international fostering.
â€œWe believe that the basic needs of children and their foster carers the world over are the same. We maintain the dual imperative of being child centered and carer focusedâ€ Estella Abraham, Executive Group Director, Key Assets International.
Making a positive and lasting difference for children and families is our commitment. And itâ€™s not just applicable to one country but a vision that weâ€™re dedicated to providing wherever they operate and diversification into broader semis for children and families is happening in North America and Australasia.
