Covenant Kids Manor Inc.
ORLANDO, FL 32828, US
Covenant Kids Manor, Inc. (CKM), mission as a non-profit 501(c)3 publicly-supported foundation is to utilize a Supportive Foster Care approach. To address the lack of available homes for children in foster care. We have operated a Child Caring Agency in the State of Florida for the past 14 years. Our new business goal is to expand the agency first in Florida and then nationwide by hiring staff to live in and manage a home with foster children which is located in a residential setting. The staff would work from home and be paid $60.00 per day per foster child as a salary. The CKM staff member would earn $21,900. per year per child or based on the maximum number of children (5) they would earn a potential salary over $100,000. annually. Each newly licensed residential group home of 5 would generate $237,000+ per location. Each new location generates its own revenue and the staff receives the same proven training to ensure the success of the employee and the optimal care of the foster children, staff recruitment and retention will be high. CKM will be able to accommodate children ages newborn to 17. We can also make our homes available to some of the 17,000 unaccompanied alien children that have been placed into foster care nationwide with the number expected to reach 33,000 by years end. Florida has approximately 11,000 children in foster care.

50 LICENSED LOCATIONS IN FLORIDA 100 LOCATIONS NATIONWIDE
Covenant Kids Manor, Inc. (CKM, Inc.) has a 15-year plan to open 500 licensed residential group homes of 5 children located in urban cities across the country. These licensed homes would have full time live in staff who care for the foster children and be able to earn a living doing so. By paying staff a $50.00 per day per child salary instead of the small $15.00 per day reimbursement that traditional foster parents receive, employees will be professional managers of their own foster care clients under the supervision and direction of CKM. CKM would have supervisors to oversee the live in staff and provide support to many residential group home families within a strategic area. Since there are currently over 400,000 children in foster care nationwide, these figures are very realistic and also a conservative estimate.
GROUP HOME CARE FOR TEENS
Our first group home opened in August 2001, and our second group home opened in December 2001. Our daily rate per child went from $70/day, to $84/day, to $97/day, to $105/day until we negotiated our current rate of $130/day per child. We grew to 6 group homes in 2008, then relocated three group homes and reduced our number of homes to 3 in 2010. We currently have 5 group homes with annual revenue of $1,152,000. We are licensing our 6th group home and we have been paid special rates from $200 to $450 per day for children who are harder to place and require special supportive services.
