Brooklawn Child and Family Services was founded as an orphanage in 1851 for the children of Louisville’s growing German immigrant population, Brooklawn provides comprehensive care, treatment, and education for children and youth with serious emotional disturbances and is one of the largest agencies of its kind in the state of Kentucky. Children admitted to Brooklawn have often been victims of severe abuse, neglect or other trauma, and oftentimes, they have been separated not only from their birth family, but have had the additional trauma of rejections from adoptive or foster parents. Today, their residential programs serve over 100 boys and girls ages 5 to 18 from across the Commonwealth of Kentucky without regard to race, creed or national origin. Brooklawn is one of the larger non-profit health and human services organizations in the community. www.brooklawn.net
