Benchmark Family Services is a network of professional, therapeutic foster homes and committed staff across four states with the goal of providing stable out-of-home placements for children in need. We work alongside child welfare agencies to provide stable care to youth in the least restrictive setting possible as they work toward their goals. The results we see in the youth that pass through our care encourage us to carry on in our mission to give even the most troubled kids a second chance.
Benchmark’s mission is to work alongside referring agencies to provide stable and caring placements for youth in need of out-of-home care. We advocate for children by ensuring reasonable opportunities for healthy physical, psychological and emotional growth and development in the most normal and least restrictive setting possible. To this end, Benchmark will provide and coordinate programs and services in cooperation with referring child welfare agencies. Benchmark is committed to the highest standards of childcare and professionalism.
Benchmark Family Services is the result of mergers and acquisitions that combined the resources of therapeutic foster care agencies across our service area. Benchmark has a history of providing quality out of home placements to children in need since March of 1994. We have had the privilege of placing and managing the cases of thousands of youth throughout Kentucky, Indiana, and Texas for over 20 years.
Benchmark relies heavily on the experience of our professional and qualified staff members. With over 400 staff in our organization, we have hundreds of years of social work experience to rely on as we carry out our mission.
