Children's Home of Northern Kentucky has a long-running history of providing critically needed services to children across the state, but gone are the days of it simply operating as an orphanage. I had helped with a holiday project to benefit the Home many years ago, but it had fallen off my radar until just recently. The programs they offer now are some of the most sophisticated in the Commonwealth, and most certainly the NKY/Greater Cincinnati area. Under the leadership of the agency's current CEO, everything has transformed for the better - the programs, the staff, even the physical buildings (both inside and out). I'm proud to support CHNK as a donor; I know my money is being put to great use to treat kids in need, and I can't wait to see how the Home continues to transform itself and our community!
