    Green River Ministries can help
    If you’ve never been assigned a social worker, a lot of the jargon used at Green River Ministries Homeless Shelter is likely to sound like another language. One of the most commonly used phrases, but less frequently explained terms used at our organization is, “case management.” What does this term actually mean?

    We need a homeless shelter

  • Letters to the editor - Parents beg for answers
  • Letter to the editor - Homeless children in our communities

    People in the community are startled. And people in the community want to help. A recent publication of the Central Kentucky News Journal released information provided by the local school districts: there are a reported 85 homeless students in Taylor County. Interestingly enough, based solely on data from Green River Ministries Homeless Shelter, between September 2016 and

    Family is forever
    At the Village of Lebanon Assisted Living we are one big family. When moving a loved one into an assisted living community, one important word that comes to mind is “trust.“ You want the peace of mind that your loved one will receive the utmost care by professionals who will treat them like their own family. At Village of Lebanon Assisted Living, we could not take this responsibility more seriously.

  • Letters to the editor - Stop the vape ban

    In a recent announcement from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), certain vapor product compliance deadlines will be extended to 2022. Although this appears to be a victory for the vape industry, it is not the end of the uphill vape ban battle.
    The good news is that Congress is still currently considering H.R. 1136, the FDA Deeming Authority Clarification Act of 2017. This law would provide sensible regulations that allow a better FDA approval process for existing and future products.

  • Every month should be National Recovery Month

    To the editor:

    September was National Recovery Month — a month when those effected by drug addiction take time to celebrate those who have succeeded in recovery and remember those who have lost their life to addiction.
