collective knowledge, thoughts, & resources.


is my land.

It is the place

beneath the wind and sun

in the very heart

of America.

If these United States

can be called a body,

Kentucky can be

called its heart.

Cooking is like Love.

It should be entered into with abandon,

or not at all.

~Julia Child

We're busy these days trying to keep some really special women and their children fed, and we couldn't do it without you. During this time of crisis, your monthly membership fee has been helping us provide food for families in need.

The women who go through the Chrysalis House addiction recovery program graduate into Chrysalis House apartments while they get on their feet. These transitional apartments allow them to bloom in a supportive environment where they are able to live with their children, find jobs, and have assistance with childcare during the day. 

The transitional time these women are in is new for them. They are newly navigating life as their children's primary caregivers, working full-time jobs, paying rent, and living healthy, balanced, sober lives on their own.  Due to the COVID19 crisis, they have all found themselves unemployed and without any childcare support.

Chrysalis House is Kentucky’s oldest and largest licensed substance abuse treatment program for women.  They specialize in treating pregnant and parenting women, and, most importantly, these mothers in recovery are able to keep their newborns and toddlers on-site with them while in residential treatment.
