Sunflower Kids envisions diverse communities that are free of violence.
Sunflower Kids uniquely supports Kentucky families and safe communities through Supervised Visitation Services. Sunflower Kids values safety, justice, and respect so that all individuals are empowered to live free of violence.
Sunflower Kids provides supervised visitation services that are based on the following guiding principles, adapted from guidelines developed by the Office on Violence Against Women:
Organized as a nonprofit agency in 2001, Sunflower Kids was created to respond to the need for a safe, affordable, and supervised child visitation setting, mainly for families affected by domestic violence and child abuse. We are proud to have served over 700 families since 2003. To learn more about us, click the links below:

Lexington Fayette Urban County Government is awarded a new federal Safe Havens grant. As a result of this grant, Sunflower Kids overhauls all policies and procedures to incorporate the Safe Havens Guiding Principles.
Sunflower Kids moves into our current location, a brand new facility provided by AU Associates. This new facility helps Sunflower Kids increase capacity to serve even more families.
Sunflower Kids begins serving clients referred for reasons other than domestic violence, which includes child abuse, substance abuse, mental health issues, and a variety of other reasons.
Sunflower Kids begins the process of opening a second center in a rural community.
Sunflower Kids opens a part-time satellite center in Georgetown, KY in order to serve more rural clients.
These measures were instated to ensure that court-ordered visitation can occur while no-contact Domestic Violence Orders remain in place.
Our part-time satellite center is located within Georgetown Police Department at 550 Bourbon Street, Georgetown, KY 40324.
