Ramey-Estep Homes, Inc. emerged from the compassion and dedication of two remarkable individuals, Gertrude Ramey and Hack Estep. Initially separate entities, their facilities, Hack Estep Home for Boys and The Ramey Home, provided shelter and care for children in need. In 1992, they merged to form Ramey-Estep Homes, consolidating resources to better serve their shared mission of child welfare.

Over the years, Ramey-Estep Homes expanded its services and facilities, including the construction of cottages after a fire in 1994, adding a high school in 1997, and the establishment of foster homes and educational programs. They also focused on preventing out-of-home placements through various community programs. In 2005, a state of the art dining hall and training facility was added to the Rush Campus further enhancing the facilties and services.

Further developments included the launch of the Re-group Outpatient Program providing mental and beahvioral health services to a variety of ages in 2014. Since then, additional outpatient offices have opened, a Grayson location in 2019, and a Northern Kentucky location in 2020 with additional expansion plans. In 2020 residential programming expanded to include adult women particularly focusing on recovery with substance use disorder treatment. In 2022, that residential program expanded to add services for men in recovery.

Throughout its evolution, Ramey-Estep Homes has remained committed to the legacies of its founders, prioritizing the welfare of children, their families, and the community.
