Quilt Ministry

At the Kentucky United Methodist Children's Homes, we want every child to know they are a person of worth. One of the ways we do this is by providing a handmade quilt for them when they enter our programs. Many times our youth come to us with very few personal belongings. A quilt made with love and care just for them is often a very special gift.

If you're a quilter and would like to contribute to this ministry, see below for specifications:
  • Quilts must be Twin or Full sized
  • We currently lack boys' themed quilts with masculine colors (we have plenty of quilts for our girls to choose from!)
Quilts can be delivered or mailed to either of our campuses in Owensboro or Nicholasville.
