Four Seasons Tent Rental provided rentals to the Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky today as they were awarded $1.5 million from Kentucky’s First Lady Jane Beshear and State Attorney General Jack Conway.
“We’ve partnered with Four Seasons for years and we knew exactly who to call,” said Chief Executive Officer Rick Wurth. “This is a huge accomplishment for our agency and Four Seasons Tent Rental always provides excellent service and endless support for our organization.”
Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky (CHNK) provides residential and community-based treatment programs for abused, neglected, and at-risk children and their families.
The $1.5 million, made possible through the KY Kids Recovery Grant Program and the Substance Abuse Treatment Advisory Committee (SATAC), will allow the agency to expand its services to include substance use disorder treatment.
“Right now, the need is around youth and the epidemic of addiction,” explains Wurth. “This grant will enable us to launch new treatment lines and further expand the type of behavioral health treatment we’re already providing through our residential treatment program and the school/community-based Champions program.”
This grant will not only allow the agency to expand its services, but it will be the first residential treatment facility in Northern Kentucky that is targeted specifically towards youth battling substance abuse and chemical dependency.
“Thanks to the efforts of Governor and Mrs. Beshear, as well as the diligent work of State Attorney Jack Conway, Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky can pivot more quickly from the planning stage to the actual treatment of adolescents battling addiction in the Commonwealth,” said Wurth. “Their efforts, joined with the Substance Abuse Treatment Advisory Council, have effectively cut through layers of bureaucracy and have literally put children and adolescents as first priorities during an epidemic of heroin and other drug use. CHNK is proud to be part of a comprehensive plan to aid Kentucky families and youth during this critical period.”
CHNK is always looking for new friends in the community who will help them build bridges to better furtures for abused, neglected, and at-risk youth. Financial support is always their most critical need; no gift is too small and every gift is noticed, needed, and appreciated. For individuals not able to make a financial gift, however, an easy way to get involved with the Home is to follow them on social media. They regularly share updates about the work they do and the help they need on heir Facebook page, as well as via Twitter and LinkedIn. CHNK welcomes businesses, churches, schools, and civic groups to hold donation drives throughout the year; these drives help offset expenses they incur related to the clothing, bedding, personal hygiene, and household supply needs they experience in their residential treatment program. A wish list is available on their website at www.chnk.org/wish-list.
