LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A Louisville-based agency just received $10 million to help children.  The National Safe Place organization announced Thursday that it is getting the federal grant.

Safe Place provides help and safety for kids in crisis, in stores and public buildings displaying the yellow Safe Place sign.  The grant money is to be used for training to deal with the growing problem of children in trouble.

Laurie Jackson of National Safe Place says the problem of homeless children is becoming worse because of the challenging economy.
