As expressed in our Mission Statement, we are committed to projects that focus on people, neighborhoods and community.

Our involvement with the Kentucky Housing Corporation's Recovery Kentucky initiative to help Kentuckians recover from substance abuse allows us to partner with nonprofits like The Healing Place and Cumberland River Comprehensive Care Center (CRCCC), Inc. to help people overcome barriers that keep them from family and friends and from being part of their communities.

Through projects like Louisville Scholar House and Downtown Scholar House, our partnership with Family Scholar House enables us to create a meaningful project to help hard-working single parents raise healthy children and improve their family's quality of life while furthering their education.
