Metro homeless encampment task force and Colonial gardens

Metro Homeless Encampment Task Force

Office of Resilience and Community Services needs help with the growing number of homeless in downtown Louisville.

Eric Friedlander, Chief Resilience Officer talks about what their office and others are doing to help those living on the street.

There are over 30 agencies in WAVE country working to help the homeless population. Volunteers go out and count the number of homeless in the community to let the government know, this way the state can get funding to help those who are homeless.

Louisville has introduced positive change boxes downtown. These boxes allow the community to put any spare change they have into a collection to provide funding for food, shelters, soup kitchens, blankets, clothes, etc.

If people need a bed at a shelter for the night, call (502) 637-BEDS

To make a reservation for the mentally ill, call Centerstone’s outreach team at (502) 287-0642

Colonial Gardens

Jeff Underhill discusses major renovation at Colonial Gardens and invites the community to be a part of it.

The new gardens will have memorial engraved bricks to allow the community of WAVE country to be apart of the new project.

They call it owning a piece of history. Bricks start at $125 dollars, the price varies depending on the size and engravement.
