Goodwill Industries of Kentucky’s Another Way program has partnered with the Hope Village to provide an emergency shelter for unhoused individuals in Louisville during the week of January 15, 2024, when the city is expected to experience consistent freezing temperatures and winter weather.
Another Way is using its four transit vans to pick up unhoused individuals and transport them to the Kentucky Exposition Center, where they will earn $50 and lunch for four hours of work. From there, the individuals will be transported to Coleman Preparatory Academy, where they will remain overnight.
Donations are welcome and can be dropped off at the Coleman Preparatory Academy at 1039 South 16th Street or Goodwill’s Metro Louisville Opportunity Center at 909 East Broadway. To learn more about Goodwill’s Another Way program, click here. For more information about the Hope Village, click here.
