Mission: The Cabbage Patch Settlement House is a non-profit, Christian organization that exists to empower at-risk families and children to be self-sufficient by helping them maximize their spiritual, social, emotional, physical, moral, economic and educational potential. Major programs include Recreation/Youth Development, Educational Opportunities and Counseling & Family Servcies. Although we offer a wide variety and significant number of program opportunities, our primary programming philosophy emphasizes proactive programs, which are based on established goals and objectives. Our programs offer children and families a hand-up, not just a handout.

I have volunteered at the Patch for over 15 years. I work with children and youth and know first hand the power of The Patch in their lives. Children are given opportunities to experience a sense of future and support for those dreams. Families are supported emotionally and with training to help their children achieve.

I have also volunteered in other community centers during my lifetime, in Cleveland and in Alexandria Va. The Cabbage Patch has a nearly perfect match of a highly focused board of directors and a staff that has the skills and facilities to provide great opportunities for youth to excel and reach their individual potentials.

The Cabbage Patch has been in existence for 100 years serving children and families who are poor and oppressed and giving them hope and skills to face their futures. Youth as young as 6 and as old as 18 come to The Patch in the afternoons to get help with homework, tutoring to raise their levels of proficiency in language arts and math, help applying to and paying for college, access to a myriad of classes in arts, athletics and health all the while building trusting relationships with loving adults and peers. Families of the youth we serve also have opportunities for counseling, help reaching self sufficiency and learning ways to better parent and support their children. The alumni of The Patch live all over our community and work in such fields as architecture, engineering, finance, education, and health and human services. I have been involved with The Patch for 13 years and believe it is the premier youth serving organization in Louisville.
