Congressman Yarmuth

Congressman Yarmuth Visits Excellence Academy Site

We welcomed Congressman Yarmuth to one of our Excellence Academy early learning centers - the Southwest YMCA - to show him the work that is being done in these classrooms to help change the odds for children in our community through quality early learning.

High School Graduation

Journey to High School Graduation

Journey to High School Graduation

Currently in Jefferson County, nearly 1 out of every 3 kids who enters high school as a freshman will not make it through their senior year. But, regardless of a kid's situation and the impact of negative forces, a kid's own resiliency supported by interventions from the community can make a difference.

Family Engagement

ASQ Toy Drive

Recently Metro United Way led a toy drive within our community specifically for 150 children in our Neighborhood Ages & Stages Questionnaires Parent Network in Louisville.

Remember to call 2-1-1 if you or someone you know needs non-emergency medical transportation assistance due to the snow and bitter cold this week. 

You may use the hashtag announced by the mayor, #louSNOWhelp, on Twitter, the mayor's Facebook page or Instagram to connect with volunteers for help with transportation needs.




We know the importance of reading on grade level and having books in the home. In fact, nearly 2/3 of students who reach 4th grade without proficient reading skills end up on welfare or in prison. Celebrate the beginning of National Literacy Month by reading to a child! 



The recent Southern Indiana Community Celebration brought together volunteers and corporate partners who have helped us improve lives and our community. The attendees heard from a local principal, key volunteers and staff about the incredible results in Harrison, Floyd and Clark Counties in Indiana. You can see photos from the celebration here.



Don't forget, it's tax season! The 2014 filing season has started and ends on 4/16/15. Visit http://labcservices.org/ or call 2-1-1 for details, locations and hours of service for free income tax preparation assistance.
