Kaitlyn Frick is a student leader at the University of Kentucky (UK) dedicated to helping address issues of homelessness among youth within our Lexington community. Kaitlyn has committed herself to leadership and service by investing in UK's student-led Center for Community Outreach (CCO), which engages students in the community through service, leadership, and education. Currently, she serves as the Program Director for Wildcats for HOMES, a CCO program, where she helped establish a mentorship program that connects UK students with at-risk youth in local elementary schools. The HOMES program also organizes events around the annual National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (NHHAW) in November of each year. As director, Kaitlyn increased the number of partnerships across campus to expand the scope and breadth of the week's programming events, and she has championed the needs of homeless youth between 18-24 years of age. She has worked with city, campus, and community partners to raise awareness around the issue and to find practical solutions.
