Children in Community Care
The Children in Community Care (CCC) Program provides a continuum of care for youth and young adults who have mental health diagnoses such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (DDID) and who are placed in the custody of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services. The youth that we serve are experiencing severe challenges in their lives and are frequently placed in hospitals and acute care settings prior to entering the CCC Program. Youth who live in Key Assets group homes have complex needs that require an intensive, therapeutic placement option. Group home residences enable youth to live more independently with staff support. All group homes are located in residential neighborhoods allowing the opportunity for community living.
The CCC Program licensed its first specialized group home in December 2014 and currently has eight group homes located in a three-county area. Each specialized group home is licensed as a 2-3 bed residential treatment facility that is designed to meet the unique needs of the youth in our care.
Each specialized group home is supported by a team that consists of a House Manger, a Case Manager, a Therapist, and Community Support Associates.
Since Key Assets Children in Community Care Group Home Program began in January 2014, we have successfully transitioned 24 youth.
