Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children
In 2006, 20 percent of Kentucky’s children were living in poverty. More than 90,000 had no health insurance, and there were 15,000 cases of substantiated child abuse. These numbers and many other barometers of child welfare in the commonwealth are compiled by the Kentucky Youth Advocates. Together with Metro United way, they have created a blueprint for Kentucky’s children – an agenda for improving the well-being of the bluegrass state’s youngest citizens. Join us this Friday to see what challenges kids face, and what the blueprint recommends for improving their lives and futures.
