Specific Projects: 

Fundraising - Looking for creative ways to fund raise for the program.  Identifying groups and businesses that would host toiletry and diaper drives.  Form a campaign for monthly donors.  

Grant identification - We are in need of funding for our Family Assistance Program.  Locating and researching grants that we would fit within their guidelines for applying. 

Needs Assessments - Doing an assessment of the local community and what there biggest needs are and how The Nest can help  fulfill those needs.  

Research of current demographics including income levels for each area of Lexington.

Research on domestic violence in Central Kentucky.

Research on LGBTQ+ statistics for Central Kentucky, suicide rates, bullying, and other barriers the LGBTQ+ community faces.

Research on children birth to age 5 that do not attend preschool and the results.

Research on Parents that have had their children removed from the home and how it effects their lives.

Fundraising:  We need help stocking our resource closet!  This can be done through donations drives collecting hygiene items like shampoo, conditioner, feminine hygiene, toothbrushes & toothpaste, deodorant, etc. This is an ongoing need.  We have tried to find sponsors for specific hygiene items for specific months of the year. That has worked well, but we run out of items so quickly.  Getting assistance with physical hygiene items would be like providing a miracle!
