Heart of Kentucky Steering Committee
The Heart of Kentucky Steering Committee raises awareness & support in Boyle, Garrard, Lincoln, and Mercer counties.
The Heart of Kentucky Steering Committee leads with a spirit of engagement. They formed in February 2019 to build awareness about services to support survivors in the region.
“It has been wonderful to have this committed group supporting our work,” says staff member and Danville resident Mary Trollinger.
Steve Lownds was an inaugural member. He works at Centre College and engaged staff from the school’s Title IX office in awareness projects on campus. “We are excited to continue to bring community members together to spread the word and support survivors,” shares Steve.
The City of Danville has issued proclamations during Domestic Violence Awareness Month the past few years, and the Advocate-Messenger has featured several articles about the mission.
“The steering committee cares about their community and has raised awareness about local services,” says Mary. “You don’t have to travel a long distance to find safety.”
