As part of our ongoing collaboration with Boone County students, these art students use their talents to brighten the lives our guests in shelter. Special thanks to Rita Furjanic Grant for being an outstanding art teacher at Boone County High School and The Boone County Schools for providing real world projects that make a difference in the community. The ceiling tiles are going up in the bedrooms so our guests have something beautiful to look up at as they go to sleep. #everyonecounts #changingtheworld #arthelps #boone2020 ... See MoreSee Less

Several Boone County High School art students created works of art on ceiling tiles and donated those tiles to the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky. The shelter is going to display the tiles on the ceilings of the sleeping areas to brighten the view for the residents. It's a service learning project that allows the students to share their creations and let those staying in the shelter know that they matter.

What's missing in the first picture? If you said, the line of people to get into shelter, you are right. Why no line? It's because we were providing 24 hour emergency sheltering for our guests and any adult in our community that needed it again. This makes the total number days of providing 24 hour sheltering to a whopping 15! We have never done that many before. EVER. We have seen over 360 adults in the 102 days of winter, 15 of them doing 24 hours. We do this because it is the right thing to do for our NKY neighbors in crisis & to make sure adults are safe. Please consider helping us out, every $20 donation provides one night of shelter emergencyshelternky.org/help-out/donate/ or send checks to PO Box 332 Covington KY 41012. ... See MoreSee Less

Our community has people sleeping outside, in cars, shelters and other places not meant for housing. To help them receive services, we have administer a survey once we find them. The K-Count also helps determine how much federal funding will be awarded from HUD for homeless programs to agencies that provide services. The more people we find, the more resources are available for our neighbors. Training to administer the count is being held on January 18th at Indiana Wesleyan University at 600 Meijer Drive, Ste 200, Florence KY 41042.
