Many folks who spent part of their childhood at St. Joe's return during the Picnic to greet and reminisce with old friends. This year, the Media Room will be open as a dedicated space for alumni. Follow signage at the east end of the building for directions.

Welcome to Our New Executive Director

St. Joseph Children’s Home welcomes Grace C. Akers as our new Executive Director, beginning August 1. Ms. Akers was previously with the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, administering foster care, adoptions, and family support programs. Her leadership and long-time service to children in crisis throughout Kentucky will be such an asset to St. Joe’s residential treatment, foster care and adoption programs.

Ms. Akers brings a breadth and depth of experience not only as an administrator, but also as a strong advocate for abused and neglected children. She was the regional director in the Southern Bluegrass Region for the Department for Community based services since 2007 where she oversaw a 10 county region. Additionally, Akers holds distinguished honors and awards throughout the state, including her work with CASA.
