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.

With the arrival of COVID-19, client needs have increased. The Care Cottage has been blessed with funding to be able to offer our families emergency food boxes. Each food box consists of enough food to last one week. We have also been able to provide families in need with cleaning supplies and hygiene products.
The Covid-19 quarantine has impacted the lives of school children in the Kentucky River region. As a way, to help alleviate some of the stress these children are experiencing, the Care Cottage has been able to provide all our new clients with activity bags appropriate for each child’s age. The tote bags are filled with, ideas for scavenger hunts, jump ropes, bug catchers, books, puzzles, board games and other activities.
Enterprise Holdings Foundation
On June 10, 2020 the Care Cottage was presented with a check from Enterprise Holdings Foundation. Thank you Enterprise Holdings Foundation for donating $3000 to the Ky River Child Advocacy Center. Its support will help us help children who are victims of child sexual abuse. Kaveh Kashef from Enterprise Holdings Foundation and Tim Short from Tim Short Auto Group stopped by the Care Cottage to deliver the check. Thank you so much!!
