NEWPORT, Ky. (March 2, 2023) – Today, Gov. Andy Beshear presented more than $1 million to 14 local nonprofits in Campbell County as part of his commitment to invest in communities across the commonwealth.

This much-needed funding will enable us to expand our reach and provide more individuals with the care they need,” said CEO James Sherry. “We are deeply grateful to Gov.

Our staff’s dedication and hard work have made this grant possible, and we are humbled by the support we have received. We look forward to continuing to make a positive impact in the lives of our clients and their families.”

“The nonprofits we’re celebrating today are changing lives in Campbell County and beyond,” said Gov. Beshear. “As a dad, there is nothing more important to me than investing in Kentucky families and making sure they have all the opportunities they could hope for right here.”

The awards come from the Nonprofit Assistance Fund, which is helping organizations across Kentucky recover from the effects of the pandemic. The funding comes from the federal American Rescue Plan Act, and Gov. Beshear supported the allocation by the 2022 General Assembly.
