Florence, KY – The Bill & Betsy Scheben Care Center is proud to announce it received a grant from the Honorable Order Kentucky Colonels (HOKC) in the amount of $7,500 to purchase a handicap accessible vehicle.

The Bill & Betsy Scheben Care Center serves Northern Kentucky by providing care for adults and teens with physical and/or intellectual disabilities.

The $2 million mark is a record for the KY Colonel’s annual grant program, according to HOKC Executive Director Sherry Crose, as more than 230 charities throughout the Commonwealth will receive grants this year and 3-million Kentuckians will be aided through the combined impact of the non-profit organizations receiving these grants.

Lynn Ashton, Commanding General of the Kentucky Colonels said, "A Kentucky Colonel is more than just a certificate, it's a group of compassionate people who care about people.”

HOKC is a 501(c)(3) supporting Kentucky charities and worthy organizations through its Good Works Program. Donations are given by Colonels appointed by the Governor, who chose to exercise this honor in a meaningful way.  For more information go to www.kycolonels.org.
