About Our Organization
Louisville’s own Home of the Innocents, a private, non-profit agency that has been in operation for over 133 years, last year served over 3,900 children and families. The Home provides services to assist those who are facing severe crisis, including—
• Residential, crisis care and foster care services for children who have been abused, abandoned and neglected; community based services offering in-home therapy for children with behavioral healthcare needs and their families and services for children with Autism and other behavioral healthcare needs.
• The Home operates a hospital-like and home-away-from-home environment for medically fragile children, children who are dependent on technology to sustain life, as well as children who are terminally ill.
• Open Arms Children's Health offers a one stop shop for medical, dental, hearing, vision and behavioral healthcare alongside the Home's on-campus Village Pharmacy. Following the integrated healthcare model, Open Arms can serve the whole child.
Although the children require various levels of care, they are children first and residents or patients second. The Home has helped thousands of children, and hundreds receive care on any given day. For many of these children, the Home is where hope begins.
