Investing In Our Children
The Lexington Forum is proud to present this month’s panel of experts that are going lead our conversation in “Investing In Our Children”.
Time & Location
Nov 07, 2019, 7:15 AM – 8:30 AM
Lexington Forum, Hilary J. Boone Center at the University of Kentucky, Rose Street, Lexington, KY, USA
About the event
In Lexington and the surrounding areas in Central Kentucky, our children and youth are experiencing trauma, addiction in families, abuse and neglect, as well as the effects of being raised in single family homes in impoverished situations. Homelessness and rejection of LBGTQ+ youth by their families lead to situations that require housing, support and care from our community by Arbor Youth. Young single mothers are wrapped in care by Step By Step and The Nest has provided support for decades to the disenfranchised youth. These three organizations work together to serve pockets of Lexington that are invisible to many people in our community and to ensure that services are not duplicated but rather complement each other.
We look forward to hosting our guests: Tanya Torp with Step By Step, Lori Clemons with Arbor Youth and Jeffery White with The Nest.
Join us to have a conversation about investing in our children.
