THANK YOU! Your support during Give For Good Louisville was unprecedented as we raised more funding than we ever have before! In 2016, St. Joe’s raised a little over $47,000 and ranked 16th out of 600+ nonprofits. This year, St. Joe’s raised $73,320, and it was all thanks to you! Out of the 500+ participating nonprofit organizations, St. Joseph Children’s Home ranked 9th overall. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for everyone who did their part on September 14th to help Kentucky’s most abused and neglected children. It was a great day of giving and we look forward to next year!

Here’s to longer days, warmer nights, and only 143 more days until St. Joe’s Picnic...but first, snow. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏾‍♂️

When “Justin” found out about the mother/son dance at a school he attends off campus, he felt an overwhelming sense of loneliness. His biological mother recently terminated her parental rights and losing her made Justin feel depressed, rejected, and unworthy of love.

Fortunately, Justin had Residential Supervisor, Ms. Monica, who has cared for him since he very first arrived to St. Joe’s. Taking his hand in hers, Ms. Monica told Justin that even though she’ll never be his real mom, she would always love him for who he is and would gladly take him to the mother/son dance.

Tonight, Ms. Monica and Justin go hand-in-hand to dance the night away like a real family. Because of Ms. Monica’s compassion, Justin feels worthy of love and knows that he is not alone. This is what “Giving Children a Home” really means.
