Angel’s Hope is still looking for angels.
The nonprofit agency, which seeks to help local families through individual and group therapy and court-ordered supervised visitation for caregivers and their children, was turned down by the Harrodsburg Board of Commissioners Monday night.
The commissioners explained the city’s miscellaneous fund was depleted for the 2016 fiscal year, but invited the group to apply again the upcoming fiscal year.
That leaves Angel’s Hope in a precarious situation. While the agency has been offering their services free since the first of the year, they will not be able to bill insurance companies until the end of March.
The agency opened the first of the year and by February, 30 clients had sought help at Angel’s Hope.
Marissa Walker, M.S., the case manager, said the agency’s client base is growing, especially after Angel’s Hope began working with the Department for Community Based Services Child Safety Branch and the Mercer County Family Court.
