Family Care Center
The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government's Parent Education Program partners with Fayette County Public Schools to provide high school education and social services intervention to young mothers and expectant youths ages 14 to 20. We help them learn parenting and life skills through elective courses while they complete requirements for a high school diploma. In addition, the center offers college- and career-readiness assistance.
Transportation and child care are available. Students receive breakfast and lunch at no charge.
Our home-visitation program is for students who are expecting or have recently had a baby. It teaches new and expecting parents about health, pregnancy, home safety, bonding, and infant development.
Pediatric health care
The Family Care Center is home to a University of Kentucky primary care clinic that serves children.
How to help
The Family Care Center program strives to reward students for good grades, attendance, and exemplary behavior or character through our Student of the Month program and other initiatives. Incentives and rewards are always needed to encourage and motivate the youth. Gift cards and gift certificates for goods or services are especially valued. To contribute, please contact Tiffany Compton.
