The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels awarded a $15,000 grant to the Lotus Children’s Advocacy and Sexual Violence Resource Center.

In a statement, LOTUS said the funds would be used to build a musical playground on the Paducah campus. The playground will be an expansion of Lotus’s Expressive Arts, Therapies Center and Sanctuary Project. Lotus provides no-cost legal, forensic, advocacy and mental health services to abused children and their families in the Purchase Area to help facilitate long-term healing.

The organization is one of 314 non-profits that received a grant from the HOKC, which awarded $3.1 million in grants that will impact more than 3.9 million Kentuckians.
