Through Family Services, we provide a variety of resources and activities to support adults and families in our neighborhood. Our Family Coaches work with individuals to help them develop and achieve goals in order to improve the quality of their lives. The program provides health and wellness activities, family engagement opportunities to support strengthening of our families and operates an Emergency Food Bank. We work with the adults in our community to help them establish goals to achieve their dreams.
Emergency Food Bank
Our Emergency Food Bank — made possible by a partnership with Dare to Care — is open Monday -Friday 10am-12pm. We also have extended hours on Friday from 2pm-5pm. In order to receive an emergency food box, you must bring a government ID and a current piece of mail. To find out where you can get help based on your address, please go here.
We provide opportunities for families to participate alongside each other and with their children in both recreational and educational activities. We hold monthly cooking classes that are free to parents and other adults in our neighborhood. Yoga is available monthly as well.
Parent Cafes are held one Saturday a month. Parent Cafés are physically and emotionally safe spaces where parents and caregivers talk about the challenges and victories of raising a family.

How We Make a Difference
- We fed over 2,400 individuals through our Emergency Food Bank last year (800 were children).
- We are helping parents and adults set goals to improve the financial stability of their family.
- We have helped individuals avoid homelessness, get their GED, start a business, go back to college or obtain a higher paying job.
- By helping individuals break the cycle of poverty, we are making a positive impact on the health of our community (people living in poverty have higher rates of disability and chronic illnesses and shorter life expectancies).
- We have health and wellness education and activities. This area has an incidence of heart disease or diabetes that is twice that of the larger Louisville metro area.
Your Dollars at Work
- $25 provides a month of health-focused classes for an adult
- $100 covers the weekly cost of our Emergency Food Bank, helping ensure we can be open five days a week.
- $250 provides four weekly meetings for an adult to meet with our Family Advocate and set goals to improve the quality of their life.
