The YMCA of Greater Louisville and a group called Doctors & Lawyers for Kids each will receive a $20,000 grant from the Health Equity Fund, which was started with money that Louisville received for winning a Culture of Health Prize from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in 2016.
The report, “Poverty Beyond Income,” from the nonprofit Greater Louisville Project, shows that more than one in five children lives in poverty: That is 38,000 children, enough to fill two KFC Yum Centers, three Slugger fields or four (future) Louisville City FC soccer stadiums, GLP said.
Veteran’s Club Louisville will offer equine therapy, thanks to a couple who are donating the time with their horses in La Grange, and a certified equine therapist, who will help facilitate the experience.
An award recognizing Louisville for its “Culture of Health” has led to the creation of a $150,000 fund to improve public health in the city, where life expectancy can vary by more than a dozen years from neighborhood to neighborhood.
