How You Can Honor World Kindness Day
It’s been a rough year. The COVID-19 pandemic has swept the nation, killing hundreds of thousands and causing a severe economic downturn. But tomorrow is World Kindness Day—a time when we can pull together and remember the good things in our communities. And, at Hibbs Insurance, we think New Pathways is doing some of the best work around.
What is New Pathways?
New Pathways is a faith-based nonprofit organization based in Melber, KY, that helps care for children in crisis. They rescue boys and girls from neglect and abuse and offer them a loving home where they can get the care they need.
How did it start?
New Pathways began in 1990, when a group of Christians built a children’s home in Reidland, KY. Originally named West Kentucky Children’s Home, it provided a place where abused, neglected, and abandoned girls could find compassion and love.
In 1992, New Pathways began construction on 27 acres of donated land in Melber, where it built a new campus for boys. The organization’s facilities now include a main campus that features a gymnasium and large kitchen and can accommodate 12 children. It also has a group home down the road that can serve another 14 children.
