The Nest, a Center for Women, Children, and Families provides a place to support children and families in need, anywhere from child care to educational counseling. The Nest’s mission is to support healing, stability, and well-being of children and families. Their holistic approach includes respite child care, parent education and support, domestic violence counseling and recovery, and crisis care services for fragile families.
Every year the Nest hosts Reindeer Express which helps give children in need new toys, and coats during our cold winters. This year, The Nest was able to provide for over 275 families and 600 children who otherwise may not have had a whole holiday season.
Volunteers and donors came from all over Lexington, Crestwood Christian Church supplied food boxes for the families, 5/3 Bank gave out education toys, and our very own Rewa Zakharia who volunteered as a personal shopper for the families who came in.
Thank you to The Nest for helping hundreds of children have a warmer, happier holiday season!
