MANCHESTER-- Children ran around and expecting mothers waddled throughout Freedom House in Clay County Tuesday as officials celebrated a $2.6 million federal grant to help women overcome substance abuse disorder
The Freedom House, a Volunteers of America program, opened March 13, just as COVID-19 settled on Kentucky. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration grant will be used for operating costs and to expand services over a five-year period.
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Senate President Robert Stivers and University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto were at the Freedom House to celebrate the grant Tuesday.
