April was a whirlwind.  Thanks to the team at Central KY Community Action Head Start & the Community Collaboration for Children who hosted our Community Child Abuse Awareness Walk recently in Lebanon.  There was a record number of attendees and information booths.  It was an awesome way to show our support for taking care of our kiddos.   This type of outreach is essential for our clients to bring awareness of child abuse to our community.   Thanks again to all of those who supported and volunteered.

May is already ramping up.  May is Community Action Month and Central Kentucky Community Action Council (CKCAC) continues to recognize the success of the national Community Action Network. Community Action Month is a wonderful time to honor and celebrate the impact Community Action has in the lives of families and communities across the Lincoln Trail Area, Kentucky and the country.  Community Action offers insight to leaders looking to understand what is working on the ground to help families thrive—creating smarter solutions that can be put to work within our communities.   America’s Community Action Agencies connect millions of children and families to greater opportunity, transforming their lives and making our communities — and our nation— stronger.  This month, Central Kentucky Community Action Council will be engaging in programs and events that showcase our innovative work.  Follow us on Facebook or attend one of many events honoring this organization.  Helping people help themselves, that’s what we do daily.

May is also Older Americans Month and CKCAC will partner with the Lincoln Trail Area Development District for the Senior Celebration on May 16 from 9 am – 2 pm EST at the Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown.   The event will feature speakers, workshops, food, raffles and vendor supporters.  For over 30 years the Senior Celebration has been a fun and exciting day to honor our Senior Americans.   CKCAC is honored to be a part, see you there. 

As always, please reach out if we can assist.    More to come……much more.
