St. Agnes' House has received a $10,000 grant to provide 370 room nights of lodging for people who reside in 30 counties in Appalachian Kentucky. That's the cost of a single room for just over 1 year! Established in 1922, the Fund supports health and education programs that promote general welfare and education of people residing in Eastern Appalachian Kentucky.
For the 30 counties served by the Fund, St. Agnes' House provided 350 people with 1,650 room nights of lodging, representing 64% of the total room nights we provided over a 16-month period. It cost just over $53,000 to provide those room nights and we received just over $1,800 in donations from the guests. Thus, we raised $51,000 from donors to make sure safe, affordable and convenient lodging was available, allowing people could get the healthcare they need.
We are grateful to receive this generous donation.
