We’re Mobilizing Kentuckians to Be the Voice for Kids

Kentuckians overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, ensuring they have a strong start in life.

Research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development, making early childhood education and adequate nutrition vital.

Join us in laying the groundwork for Kentucky's future.

"I dedicate myself to advocating for kids in tough situations – those grappling with hunger, limited resources, or educational barriers, struggles I've personally faced. But now, my mission is to be their champion. Seeing kids succeed, healthy, educated, and cared for is what drives me. At the end of the day, I always reflect on my grandmother's words: 'Make sure the work you did today was worth doing.' It's a reminder that guides me and keeps me focused." – Tammy Meador, SCAN Volunteer
