kNOwMORE FUN: Meet Sunflower Kids

Our kNOwMORE FUN cameras visited the Crank & Boom Ice Cream Lounge in July for the 2015 Lexington Calendar Project. The Calendar Project is designed to bring together local young professionals, nonprofits, and businesses for networking in the area. The idea of each Calendar Project event is to shed light on different nonprofits in Kentucky.

This July they featured the nonprofit organization, Sunflower Kids.

Sunflower Kids works, “To promote healthy family relationships through the provision of supervised visitation and monitored exchange services.” They focus on families that have experienced domestic violence or court ordered families where the parent can’t be alone with the child. All the visits take place at their offices located in Lexington and in Scott County. They serve families from all over Kentucky as well as serving families from eight different states! On average they assist about 140 families a year. The Sunflower Kids organization is trying to spread awareness about their services so that can help even more families in the future.
