Reviews for Cabbage Patch Settlement House, Inc.
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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
teaching youth about healthy relationships and preventing dating violence, observing youth being tutored, learning how to play the guitar, playing in the rock band, as well as participating in step and mosaic classes... through these activities and observations I have seen youth change their views of what is appropriate in romantic relationships, grin from ear to ear as they learn a new skill and reach out to staff when they are frustrated or worried.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
hire more staff so that we could expand services to include weekends and outreach to the growing immigrant and refugee population living near our center.
