This month’s featured not-for-profit is The Cabbage Patch Settlement House.
The Cabbage Patch Settlement House is a local, non-profit Christian organization. Their mission is to equip and empower at-risk children, youth, and their families, to be self-sufficient by helping them maximize their economic, educational, emotional, moral, physical, social and spiritual potential.
In 1910, Old Louisville resident Louise Marshall founded The Cabbage Patch Settlement House with the help of her community, church, and family. Named for the Louisville neighborhood where it was originally established, The Cabbage Patch was formed in the spirit of Christian love as a safe haven for children in the neighborhood to play, grow, and learn. The Cabbage Patch quickly grew, gaining continued support from the Louisville community. By 1929, it had outgrown the capacity of its original facility on Ninth Street and moved to its current location on South Sixth Street.
The Cabbage Patch Settlement House serves approximately 1,000 children, youth, and their families annually through a variety of purpose-driven programs in Recreation/Youth Development, Educational Opportunities and Counseling & Family Services.
