Annual Christmas Project

The Care Cottage’s Annual Christmas Project was a huge success this year. With help from various organizations, local businesses, individuals in our community and donors from other states, we were able to provide Christmas presents and Christmas Eve boxes to 56 children and their families. Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to this project!!

Fall "Care to Paint" Fundraiser

Care to Paint is an instructor lead course where you are the artist. Join our painting fundraiser to get in touch with your creative side. No two paintings are alike, but all are beautiful and uniquely yours. Check out our Upcoming Events page or our Facebook page to see when our next fundraiser will be. 

As fall comes around, so does the beginning of school and Back-to-School Bashes. This year the Care Cottage was invited to celebrate going back to school with Mountain After Hours Clinic and the Hazard School System. These events gave the Care Cottage the opportunity to provide school supplies to children in the area, as well as provide information on the Care Cottage, consent, abuse, prevention, and how to get help. The Care Cottage was also able to provide information to students on the effects of drugs, alcohol, and vaping. Pantosaurus was able to join us at the Hazard Independent Schools event and was a huge hit with the kids and teens alike.

Stay Safe
Summer

The Care Cottage promoted their Stay Safe Summer Drive-Thru event at the end of school to promote a fun, clean, healthy, and drug-free summer. Toys and activities were given to each child to help keep them busy this summer as well as yummy food reminders to "Say NO to Drugs, Say YES to Tacos", "DONUT do Drugs", & "Don't Drink & Drive do the Watermelon Crawl".

Care Cottage Renovation

You may not recognize the Care Cottage these days. Both interior and exterior renovations have recently been completed. Exterior renovations included the addition of new vinyl siding and the replacement of the old windows with new energy efficient windows. We also have a new sign and plans are in place for the installation of a vinyl fence. Interior updates were completed in the medical room, the forensic interview room, and the waiting room.

 

These renovations would not have been possible without the following: 

VOCA, CHFS, Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky on behalf of the J.H. Walker Legacy Foundation, The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, Kemper Furniture, Martin Signs, Acme Glass, Home Lumber Company, Hammerhead Construction and private donors.
