Definition and Source



Percent of all children in foster care placed in Dept. for Community Based Services or private foster homes, as opposed to institutional placements such as groups homes and residential treatment facilities.

Data Source

Kentucky Cabinet for Health & Family Services, Dept. for Community Based Services


For children who had more than one placement in foster care during the reported year, only the first placement type is reported. Some child victims are directly placed into the custody of relatives by the courts without first entering the foster care system; the figures here underestimate placements with relatives. Other placements for children, such as hospitals, are not reflected in this data.

** = County had no children in foster care.
S= Suppressed for fewer than 6 children.
