Cabbage Patch Settlement House

Louisville’s Cabbage Patch Settlement House is celebrating its centennial this year plus a recently completed seven-million dollar renovation of its facilities.

But Executive Director Tracey Holladay says they’re one-point-seven million dollars behind on fundraising for the project.

“And that’s a problem,” says Holladay, “and, of course, even the annual fund is struggling as most non-profits in this economy right now. But we felt like it was the right thing to do, and as I say, I think we’ve positioned ourselves to serve for another 100 years at least.”

Holladay says the new project means they now have 40-thousand square feet of new activity space and renovated the gym.

The Cabbage Patch is a Christian, non-profit group that provides a range of services for youth, including education programs and recreation.

Holladay spoke on today’s State of Affairs.
