Building Hope with Bricks in the Northern Kentucky Children's Advocacy Center Garden

Purchasing a brick or bricks in the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center Garden is a favorite way to express appreciation for someone or something special. Inscribe the name of your family on a brick or one in memory of someone or something special… a loved one, friend, or business; or you may recognize a special occasion such as an anniversary or birth. Your brick serves as a lasting expression of your love, honor and respect while supporting the work of Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center. The brick walkway encircles the garden at the entrance of Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center, which is a beautiful, serene setting with lush greenery. Bricks measuring 4” x 8” have three lines available for inscription. Those measuring 8” x 8” have six lines for inscription.

Help Those with Hearing Loss Join the World of Sound Again

Between 25 and 30 million Americans suffer from hearing loss. Less than half of those who could benefit from hearing aids have them. Why? Very few insurance plans, including Medicare, cover the cost of hearing aids. Hearing aids are very expensive, costing up to $2,500 each. Those with hearing loss who can’t afford hearing aids miss out on much of the world. You can help by donating to our hearing aid bank at our Audiology & Hearing Aids department. If you or someone you know has hearing aids that are no longer in use, please consider donating them. Hearing aids in good condition are made available to individuals with hearing loss that demonstrate financial need. As some hearing aids need repair, we accept donations to defray the cost of repairing the hearing aids.

Sponsor an Event

A full listing of our upcoming events can be found under the “Events” tab on our website. Many organizations and individuals help support our programs through coordinated events or naming the Foundation, or one of its services, as the recipient of the fundraiser. If you would like to coordinate a fundraiser for the Community Foundation of Northern Kentucky or one of our designated services, please contact us at 859-525-1128.
