Sunrise is the largest private child care agency providing a full continuum of services for abused and neglected children and at-risk families. It operates eight residential centers, three psychiatric residential treatment centers, six foster care regions with twelve offices, Family Services, and the Youth Support Center - an alternative to detention program. 


In June 2014, Sunrise celebrated its 145th anniversary of serving needy children in Kentucky.  Annually, Sunrise serves about 2,000 children, with an average daily census of 600.   This past year, it saw the successful completion of the 200th foster to adoption, giving children forever homes with Sunrise foster families.  It received an average of 345 referrals a month seeking services or placement for children.


Churches and individuals volunteered their time to conduct Bible studies, activities, and opportunities for spiritual growth for the children in Sunrise’s care.
