Kathy Hagan, FCCH and UC Program Director

Central Kentucky Community Action welcomes Kathy Hagan as the new Family Child Care Homes (FCCH) and Unaffiliated Centers (UC) programs Director. She replaces Cathy Sparrow who officially retired at the end of October 2022, but who continued to work on the programs through the October reporting period to help train Ms. Hagan on the process. Ms. Hagan has also received assistance and training from Shirley Buckman who was the Director of the FCCH/UC programs for twenty plus years before her retirement a few years ago. Both Ms. Sparrow and Ms. Buckman are thanked for their continued help and support of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) by Ms. Hagan and Community Action.

Ms. Hagan previously held the Central Office Administrative Assistant position which enabled her to learn more about Community Action and the various programs designed to help communities in Central Kentucky. She is looking forward to promoting good nutrition for children through both the FCCH and UC programs.

Currently, the FCCH program has 22 childcare homes, and the UC program has 22 centers with two potential new centers being added after the first of the year; one is in Georgetown, KY and the other is in Lexington, KY. Ms. Hagan has already met a few of the center/homecare workers and/or owners through monitoring visits and looks forward to meeting and working with them all in the new year.
