It’s that time of year again, we’re planning for this year’s round of nonprofits to be featured in our 4-Time EMMY nominated series.
Last year we learned a lot covering nonprofits helping with disabilities and preserving history. This year we’re looking at nonprofits working to provide dental health, help veterans and help animals. That’s at least THREE NEW SHOWS for 2017! If you know of an organization in one of these categories, PLEASE NOMINATE THEM! If you work for an organization like this, NOMINATE YOURSELF!
It’s an easy thing to do on our website and only takes a couple of minutes. We’ll get in touch with each agency to discuss the possibility of featuring them on the show which will air many times throughout the state on several stations including KET. What’s even better, featured agencies will receive a copy of their segment to use for promotion, grants, fundraising, etc.
DO YOUR PART- help a nonprofit by letting us know why they should be featured!
Our newest episode, Nonprofits and History features three nonprofits supporting Kentucky’s past for the betterment of the future. In our first story we’ll take you on a tour of the Bill Monroe Birthplace, followed by the Behringer Crawford Museum, and concluding with Ashland, the Henry Clay homestead.

Learn what would happen without the preservation of this nonprofit, providing a musical history to future generations. Learn more about Bill Monroe, and what the state would be like without him.

FRIEND FOR LIFE Mission: To help persons recently diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones navigate the path through diagnosis, treatment and recovery by pairing them with a trained survivor of a similar experience so they can face cancer with someone who’s been there.
Established in 1988, Friend for Life is a network of survivors and co-survivors (caregivers) who serve as trained volunteers, providing one-on-one emotional and psycho-social support to persons recently diagnosed with cancer, and their loved ones. Facing cancer with someone who has been through a similar experience helps restore a sense of stability during a tumultuous time and to navigate the path through diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
Who we are Friend for Life is a non-profit support network of cancer survivors who serve the emotional and psychological needs of persons recently diagnosed with cancer, and their loved ones. These services are offered free of charge.
How we can help
We match persons recently diagnosed with any form of cancer as closely as possible with a trained volunteer who has encountered the same type of cancer and similar course of treatment.
Wherever possible, we also match for age and gender. Our volunteers do not advise or participate in medical decisions, but offer compassionate insights into their own experiences of coping with cancer. We can help you sort through the overwhelming feelings that often accompany a cancer diagnosis. Support is also available for family and friends.
GREEN HOUSE 17 Green House 17 serves survivors of intimate partner abuse and their communities in the 17 county Bluegrass Area Development District. We do this by sheltering over 230 individuals a year who are fleeing unsafe homes, providing thousands of court advocacy services, providing access to and financial assistance for attorneys, answering thousands of crisis and informational calls, conducting trauma informed care and peer led support groups, educating teens about dating violence, and partnering with multiple community agencies to provide the holistic care. The Kentucky Domestic Violence Association estimates that 1 in 3 Kentucky women will be victims of intimate partner abuse and that as many as 50% of homeless women and children are homeless due to domestic violence. These are the families and individuals we serve.
Without Green House 17’s services, the barriers holding many of these individuals in violent homes or keeping them homeless would still exist. While domestic violence does not discriminate, the vast majority of survivors we serve do not have any other resources. They would be either homeless or in constant fear without the resources we provide. Recently, Green House 17 received a letter from a former client thanking us for the services we provided her and her son. This case presented a very high lethality risk and involved interstate agencies. No one at the table quite knew where was the safest place for this family.
They came to Green House 17. While shelters can be very intimidating places exacerbating the trauma already held by victims, this client felt that we not only provided her with a safe space to go, but also treated her with a level of respect, love and kindness she has not experienced in other agencies since receiving our services. Specifically, she mentioned how she always felt welcomed by staff and that their doors were always open to her. She went on to say that had her first experience not been with our shelter, she would have returned to a lethal situation. We believe that it is our job to love people until they learn to love themselves. The survivors who walk through our doors are deserving; they are of value.
