Who We Are
Support. | Strengthen. | Empower.
Lotus is Kentucky’s designated children’s advocacy and sexual violence resource center for the Purchase Area Region. Our mission is to support survivors, strengthen families, and empower communities.
Lotus is committed to ending child abuse and sexual violence. We are working to cultivate a collective, unified community that meets survivors with compassion and a culture that simply does not tolerate interpersonal violence. We have been fostering transformative, lasting changes for survivors to truly heal and reclaim their lives since 1987. All services are provided free of charge.

What We Do
THIS YEAR ALONE…
We will improve safety, healing, and justice outcomes through specialized intervention and restorative services for over 1,600 child and adult survivors as well as their supportive family members.
Strong families are the best prevention for child abuse which is why we will foster resilience for more than 750 families to empower caregivers, increase protective factors, and keep children safer.
We will engage more than 20,000 youth and adults through impact-driven community collaboration, outreach, prevention education, and social justice advocacy aimed to end child abuse and sexual violence.
Grow Lotus Project
The purpose of our GROW Lotus Capital Project is to expand accessibility and enhance delivery of children’s advocacy and sexual violence program services for all-age survivors, families, and providers. The purposeful design of all 3 centers and grounds of our Paducah campus will support highly specialized intervention and restorative services as well as community outreach and education initiatives.
