The Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children is is beginning its 7th year. The Blueprint is a policy initiative supported by children’s advocates across the Commonwealth to improve the lives of children in Kentucky.

The Blueprint aims to achieve safe and healthy families, a fair deal for working parents and a fair opportunity for every child in Kentucky.

Responding to a challenge from legislators asking child advocates to speak with a common voice, children’s advocacy groups formed the Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children to help move Kentucky forward through a unified policy agenda for kids. Through our work on these issues, we want to make Kentucky the best place to be a kid.

The Blueprint efforts have been marked by great success, particularly given the fiscal constraints the Commonwealth faces. For example, the Blueprint effort was instrumental in placing into law a panel to review child abuse deaths which will improve practices in the child welfare system to prevent future child abuse deaths. The Blueprint also supported ensuring that child victims of human trafficking receive the services they need, rather than being detained or prosecuted.

Now is your chance to weigh in on what the Blueprint should focus on to help kids in the 2014 legislative session. Kentucky Youth Advocates and the Blueprint Steering Committee invite you to give your input on the potential priorities for the 2014 Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children agenda. We look forward to continuing this collaborative effort. This survey could take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.Please complete the 2014 Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children Survey to give your input into the priorities for the 7th year by August 19, by clicking here.

    As a grandparent of 5 and all in my custody kinshipcare is on my mind.We only receive 380 a month total for all 5 and this is very hard for us to meet the childrens needs.I pray that kinshipcare will start again.
