THE CABBAGE PATCH SETTLEMENT HOUSE

Faith. Perseverance. Confidence. Cooperation. Respect. Joy. Love. These are just a few of the words children see in the engraved pavers they cross leading to the front door of The Cabbage Patch. Once inside, they find a world of possibilities where loving volunteers and caring staff are committed to helping them discover their Godgiven potential. These children have big dreams and ambitions, no matter their life circumstances. Through the investment of time and the development of caring, mentoring relationships, The Cabbage Patch helps them see their dreams are attainable and their futures are bright. Throughout these fall and winter months, the children and youth at The Cabbage Patch have engaged in a plethora of activities and programs designed to help them learn and grow. They’ve explored their love of dance and pursued improved fitness and health through Youth Development/ Recreation. They’ve gained a new appreciation for reading and history in Educational Opportunities. Wherever their interests lead, we delight in their individuality and continue to seek to provide ways they can explore their dreams and ambitions.

PROGRAM SPOTLIGHT

This fall, Educational Opportunities created additional incentives for The Cabbage Patch children and youth to read with the introduction of “Friday Movie Nights.” Each week a book is selected and every day boys and girls sit down with staff members to read a chapter of the book during storytime. This time allows the children to discuss what they’ve read and explore themes and development. At the end of the week, they’re rewarded with a “Movie Night” and get to watch the movie that corresponds with the book. Books and movies covered so far include The Lorax, Alice in Wonderland, and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. This creative approach to learning is attracting new members and helps The Cabbage Patch draw more children into the Educational Opportunities program.

People always say ‘the book is way better than the movie’ and I always thought they were crazy! But, turns out the books can be pretty cool after all.

– Aaron, Age 11

Thanks to a recent grant from the UPS Foundation, The Cabbage Patch computer lab will soon have new computers. Additionally, new computers and Rosetta Stone Software have been purchased for the new “Language Lab.” These new computers and software will be used to improve literacy skills for students in Educational Opportunities.

This fall, ACT prep classes were back in full swing. Fourteen Cabbage Patch participants will take the ACT in December. While this will be the first time taking the test for some of these youth, others who have taken it before have worked with The Patch to improve their scores. ACT and college prep classes are one way The Cabbage Patch encourages our participants to pursue their dreams of a higher education.

PROGRAM SPOTLIGHT This fall saw new and returning programs in full swing in Recreation and Youth Development. New programs included “Garden Girls,” Knit Café” and “Women’s Club!”— all aimed at teaching new hobbies and improving self-esteem for girls of all ages.

In September, The Cabbage Patch hosted its first “Open Mic” night to allow children and youth to showcase their talents. When a staff member asked who wanted to start the show, a 10-year-old boy raised his hand first and explained he wanted to share how he felt about The Cabbage Patch:

LEARNING NEW MOVES WITH YPAS

The Youth Performing Arts School at Manual High School has been connected to The Cabbage Patch since 2010, when Lora Ruttan first taught dance during a summer camp. This fall, Ruttan brought the Master Class from the school to teach the boys and girls at The Cabbage Patch a dance routine. The gym was buzzing with activity as the YPAS students engaged with the kids, and The Cabbage Patchers even took the opportunity to teach these master students a few moves of their own!

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT

Gary Allen Love, a 15-year employee at Ford Motor Company, a student earning his degree in education, and father of four, is living proof of The Patch’s mission to “profoundly change lives.” At the young age of 11, The Cabbage Patch captured his heart and made a lasting impact on his life. “The first time I visited The Patch I was hooked,” Gary said. “From that day on whenever the doors were open, I would be there. I went to The Patch consistently for more than seven years.” The programs and services offered at The Cabbage Patch kept Gary busy. “During my time at The Patch I played basketball, softball, and participated in model car club with Mr. Chin,” he said. “During the summer The Patch became my home since I attended almost every camp they offered. The staff really loved every kid as their own.”

The Cabbage Patch taught Gary how to become a better team player in life, and through the relationships built, he learned the true meaning of love and friendship. “The Patch will always have a place in my heart because of the friendships I had and continue to have today. The friendships I developed during my time at The Patch are still some of my strongest. Those relationships were instrumental in my development.” When Gary attended The Cabbage Patch, a theme consistently discussed was “Winning for Life.” As an adult, Gary said the phrase has taken on a whole new meaning. “As a child I thought being a winner meant you had the best job and the biggest house, but as I matured, winning for life means trying to be a better person than I was the day before and trying to be a role model to my kids like the role models I had at The Cabbage Patch.”

The Need is Real It’s been an incredible year at The Cabbage Patch. Every afternoon, our hallways and classrooms are filled with children and youth actively participating in on-going programs and building relationships with caring staff and volunteers committed to helping them realize their full potential. At the time this newsletter went to print, we were very close to raising the $900,000 needed to receive a $300,000 Challenge Grant from the James Graham Brown Foundation and pay off nearly all the costs of our Room to Grow Campaign. With the end of the capital campaign in sight, we turn our focus to the Annual Fund, which is projected to run a deficit for the third year in a row. Mostly due to reduced distributions from our endowments, we’ve faced significant challenges in this current economic cycle. Through the guidance and leadership of our hard-working board, we’ve made cuts and trims where we can, taking special care to keep programs strong. The need is very real. Please make a generous gift prior to 12/31/12. The children of The Cabbage Patch need your help to blossom. As we draw closer to years end, it is not too late for you to make a difference in the life of Travon, Jasmine, Nick, and Nora. With your help, they can know the doors of The Cabbage Patch are open each day, welcoming them and providing opportunities to help them succeed.

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

BEING DOERS OF THE WORD Through the continued support of community churches, The Cabbage Patch is able to meet the needs of at-risk children and their families, especially during the holidays. Thank you to the following local churches who lend special assistance to make the holidays a little brighter for families in need. For almost eight years, Christ Church United Methodist members have taken Cabbage Patch Families shopping for winter coats and prepared Thanksgiving baskets for families in need. Continuing a history of volunteerism to The Cabbage Patch, members of Harvey Brown Presbyterian Church also take Cabbage Patch families shopping and provide Christmas baskets each year.

The connection between Second Presbyterian Church and The Cabbage Patch dates back over 100 years to our Founder, Louise Marshall. For decades, members have sponsored Patch families through Christmas shopping and Christmas Baskets. This year, as they have for many years, St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church adopted nine families in need, providing gifts and gift cards to cover the cost of food for the Christmas holiday.

In 2012, Southeast Christian Church continued its support of The Cabbage Patch, donating to the food pantry each month and providing a monthly meal for Patch Parents. Southeast Christian members have also helped beautify The Cabbage Patch and provided on-going support for Recreation and Youth Development programs.

In October, Cabbage Patch volunteer Kate Holwerk was awarded a WLKY Bell Award. Each year, the Bell Awards are distributed to members of the community “who have shown the true ‘Spirit of Louisville’ through unselfish, humanitarian service.” Since 2007, Kate has donated more than 1,781 hours of her time to inspiring the children of The Cabbage Patch to reach their full potential. Kate is also the 8th Cabbage Patch Volunteer to receive a Bell Award. We congratulate and thank her for her extraordinary service. Past Bell Award Winners from The Cabbage Patch 1993

Annual Cabbage Patch Auction

“

�

Jaquail Fowler struggled to adjust to the small, private college he attended on a basketball scholarship. He was ready to drop out, but being a Cabbage Patch College Scholar, staff members intervened, convincing Jaquail to finish his freshman year. He transferred to Bluegrass Community College, learned how to study and raised his GPA significantly. Jaquail then transferred to the University of Kentucky, where he is now majoring in kinesiology and plans become a physical therapist. Thanks to the generosity of more than 250 guests, the Ninth Annual Cabbage Patch Auction raised more than $100,000 to support programs and services that profoundly change the lives of 1,000-1,200 at-risk children and their families annually. More than $60,000 of the funds you helped raise directly support the Educational Opportunities Program and our College Scholars. These programs provide primary and secondary school tutoring, as well as enrichment programs and scholarship aid for 15-20 young adults like Jaquail. In addition to financial assistance for tuition, board and books, The Cabbage Patch provides emotional and spiritual support to our College Scholars through regular on-campus visits, emails, and phone calls.

The Cabbage Patch thanks the following individuals and businesses for their sponsorship support of the Ninth Annual Cabbage Patch Auction:

The Cabbage Patch is a local charity meeting the needs of local at-risk children and families. Because The Cabbage Patch is not a Metro United Way agency and chooses not to participate in funding streams that can create dependency, such as government grants, we must rely on individual donors, like you, to finance our programs. Won’t you please help by giving generously? 1413 SOUTH SIXTH STREET LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY 40208 CABBAGEPATCH.ORG 502.634.0811
