Monday's are not always bad. Today is GRADUATION DAY for Chad. Chad has been homeless since 2011 and street homeless in NKY since 2012. He was a winter guest and came into the summer recovery program with the goal to get into permanent housing. As you can see in the pictures, he moved into his own place after maintaining regular employment, saving 70% of his income, improving upon his spirtual well being and mental health in the last 3.5 months. In addition, he has been one of the most helpful guys in shelter. This is a success story that we celebrate with everyone of our donors and volunteers, you made a difference in the life of this man and he is beyond grateful. ... See MoreSee Less

I have been out and about and so many people are asking questions about 1) if ESNKY is open, 2) what are some things we need and 3) how to help. So, to answer those questions:

1) We are in our Summer life changing mode- we have 30 guys in our Summer Recovery Program working to get in a permanent housing situation. We are also running the only consistent shower/laundry program each weekday from 12-4pm.

2) Needs - currently are in napkins, paper towels, socks, mens underwear,razors, bread, cereal and milk,. Also snack foods for summer shower/laundry would be helpful.

3) Help - Our Community Action Commission assignment,"S" has finally landed a permanent job. We are thrilled for her but now need a person to help answer the phones and door. Any day time help would be great. We also have some open dates to make dinner for the 30 guys in Shelter.

Call the Shelter for additional info at (859) 291-4555
