LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Home of the Innocents is buying a building from Stockyard Farm and Dairy.
According to a news release, Stockyard Farm and Dairy owner Gordon Jones approached Home of the Innocents about purchasing his building at at the end of East Market Street after he recently closed his business.
Paul Robinson, the new President and CEO of Home of the Innocents says the building will help the Home expand critical services for children in crisis.
“Several of our programs have waiting lists and we know we will need to accommodate the growing demand for our services as the number of children in out of home care in Kentucky continues to rise," Robinson said in the news release. "We are very grateful supporters like Mr. Jones step forward to present these opportunities for us."
The Home’s board of directors decided to purchase the building following an appraisal and thorough environmental assessment and plan to use the property to accommodate future needed expansion of programs and services.
Home of the Innocents has been our region's open arms to children in crisis since 1880 throughout Kentucky and southern Indiana. The Home provides loving, therapeutic care to children who are victims of abuse, abandonment and neglect; medically fragile children; and children with autism and other behavioral health diagnoses. The Home’s Open Arms Children’s Health is a pediatric practice that meets children’s needs for all medical, dental and behavioral health care.
