Review for Cabbage Patch Settlement House, Inc., Louisville, KY, USA
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.
