  • Thank you to Paul Gottbrath and Barbara Schaefer


    The Safety Net Alliance of Northern Kentucky recognizes Paul Gottbrath and Barbara Schaefer for Vision, Dedication, and Service to the Northern Kentucky region as founding members of the Safety Net Alliance of Northern Kentucky.  From a vision to a 126 agency reality, Paul and Barbara have been there every step of the way.  Paul’s leadership within the Safety Net Alliance Food Committee has spurred tremendous advances with food distribution, relationships with grocers, and connectedness of Food providers in Northern Kentucky.  Barbara has served a critical role in the Safety Net Alliance’s Web Committee’s structuring, development, and aim to connect service providers with one another and relevant resources through the web portal.  The growth and improvement of the Web Portal would not have been possible without her unique knowledge and passion; in addition, the achievements and strides made by the Food Committee Program would not have been possible without Paul’s initiative and passion.  Both Barbara and Paul have left a lasting imprint that help remind us all that the Safety Net Alliance’s ultimate mission and purpose is worth being a part of.  Although they are rotating off their leadership roles in their respective committees, Paul and Barbara will still be active in the Safety Net Alliance.  Thank you both for your hard work and commitment to the Safety Net Alliance!

  • Health Care & Education for Kinship Care Children


    “More than 59,000 children in Kentucky are being raised by grandparents and other relatives – known as kinship care. The majority of these kinship family arrangements are informal, and oftentimes relatives do not have legal custody or guardianship of the children. This can make it difficult when it comes time for kinship caregivers to enroll children in school or access educational services or health care for them.”… Fortunately, this past April, Kentucky’s General Assembly passed SB 176 – a kinship caregiver authorization law. This new law allows relative caregivers to complete a form, called an affidavit, under penalty of perjury, stating that they are the primary caregiver of the child.”

  • Life Learning Center receives statewide award

  • Initial Growth and Success: SNA On Tour!

    The next SNA On Tour is less than 3 weeks away! This means its a perfect time to highlight some of the results from the first one at the Brighton Center. The Inaugural July SNA On Tour at the Brighton Center went beyond all expectations, attracting more than 30 SNA members. The tour offered a candid look into how the day-to-day services unfold at the Brighton Center. Those who attended, were able to learn about the financial counseling services all the way to the clothing store. The Kickoff Tour was a resounding success, convincing all those involved that the tours are a great continuation and form of collaboration between NKY SNA partners.

    All Safety Net Alliance members are encouraged and invited to attend the next SNA ON Tour at Be Concerned, September, 29th. Please RSVP Zach at with your desired attendance time of 9:00am or 2:00pm!

  • SNA On Tour! at Brighton Center

  • Postal Carriers Food Drive

    Every year in the month of May, the National Letter Carrier Food Drive gives people an easy and efficient way of donating food to families in their neighborhood. It's a simple equation: leave bags of nonperishable food and hygiene items by your mailbox, your postal worker will pick it up, and then it'll get distributed to local foodbanks.

    This drive is critical to area foodbanks and pantries, as they are transitioning out of a long and demanding winter. This year's drive, on May 10, provided ten Safety Net Alliance food pantries and soup kitchens with a whopping total of 40,261 pounds of food!

  • Congratulations to NKADD's Michael Hurysz!

    NKADD Senior Human Services Specialist Michael Hurysz was honored with the Kentucky Association for Gerontology's 2014 Distinguished Practitioner Award at the Kentucky Association for Gerontology Conference yesterday in Pikeville.  He received this award in recognition of his exceptional effort as a service provider for older people in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  The person receiving the award must meet a very specific set of criteria and Mike's 20 plus years of service in the aging field and his accomplishments have merited him this very distinguished award. 

  • Kentucky Childcare Budget Win

    Funding for childcare benefits for working families was “partially restored in the first year and fully restored in the second year of the Kentucky budget. Funding for preschool was also increased from 150 to 160 percent of the federal poverty level – providing access to 5,000 more children. […] This is the first time in eight years that the legislature has increased the state’s investment in early childhood."

  • Good News Feed

    Why a Good News Feed?

    Any particular format?

    Include a headline, and 2-4 sentences about your good news. This should be brief, but can include links to flyers or web pages elsewhere that give more details. 

    How is this different than an Alert?

    The Good News Feed is a location on the site that is solely dedicated to Partner successes. Alerts can contain any kind of information, but this Feed's function is to publicly shine a light on you and your work!


    Enjoy the Good News!
