L.O.U. Louisville Outreach for the Unsheltered
L.O.U. is a local organization that focuses on bringing resources to some of the most vulnerable populations in Louisville. They not only bring food and water and clothing but they also develop relationships with the unsheltered and help to connect them with the resources they need to find housing or the help they need.

The First Car Project

The First Car Project is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to gift cars to foster youth in the state of Kentucky. These young adults are transitioning out of the care system and into independent living. Having reliable transportation will enable them to access employment and college/vocational education.  There are many obstacles along the path for this vulnerable population and The First Car Project hopes to eliminate one. We are so excited to hand off the keys to two deserving individuals at Cars in the Commons!

Donations go to the procurement of vehicles, maintenance and updates to ensure reliability and safety, insurance stipends, and tax/registration fees for each recipient.
