Community Relationships

Relationships are essential to the transformation of our community.

Diverse relationships will help move the West End towards The Foundry’s goals. There are many gifts, talents, and resources among the groups, churches, and people in our community that are ready to be utilized. We seek to involve all people because active members of the community mean active change and that will bring about a thriving neighborhood for our children and our future.

The Foundry is committed to being a presence in our neighbor’s daily lives. We regularly invite local families and our community partners to fun events we host in order to strengthen relationships.

Some of our events include:

Back to School Bash


Christmas Party

Valentine’s Day Dance

Easter Celebration

Summer Camp Celebration

Preschool and
After School Academy

Kentucky All STARS is a state rating and improvement system for early care and education programs. In June 2018, the Foundry was pleased to announce that our Preschool and After School Academy have earned a 5 STAR rating under the childcare division, which is the highest rating possible.

In March 2019, we received approval that continued our 5 Star rating.

Talent is universal.
Opportunity is not.

The Foundry is using an intervention educational model that is extraordinarily high quality to make an incredible impact in the lives of young children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to excel educationally.
