LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky's oldest child welfare agency is making room to help even more neglected and abused girls.
Ground was broken Tuesday morning for a new cottage at Maryhurst. The new housing will have room for 14 girls.
At any given time, the Maryhurst campus is home to 65 teenage girls. Officials say the new space is critical to the success and growth of the residents.
Valle Jones of the Maryhurst Board of Directors explains, "We are a leader in our field, strive to be best, goal is not just heal, but empower
to the life of our community."
Money for the new cottage was raised through its Stand up for Girls Campaign. This year, Maryhurst is celebrating its 170th anniversary.
