Readiness Busses

Partners for Education at Berea College is rolling out two mobile classrooms that will prepare parents and children to enter kindergarten ready to learn. The Readiness Bus project, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Elgin Children’s Foundation, will serve 60 families in the Big Creek, Oneida and Red Bird areas of Clay County over the course of the three-year pilot. The mobile classrooms, named Rosie and Sunny, started visiting children and families in June. The busses visit children not already enrolled in an early childhood education program at their homes for 75 minutes each week. During these visits children work with an early childhood specialist to further develop skills that will benefit them in the classroom while parents work with a family navigator to strengthen their ability to support their child’s learning.

Hepatitis C

Kentucky is no stranger to the hepatitis C virus. More than 38,000 Kentuckians are currently infected with hepatitis C, according to estimates from the Kentucky Department for Public Health. The contagious liver disease can cause liver cancer or cirrhosis, and is spread by contact with an infected person’s blood. It is often contracted by sharing needles or other equipment to inject illegal drugs, sexual contact with someone who has an STD or HIV infection, or getting a shot, tattoo or piercing when the needle has infected blood on it. It can also be passed on to babies at birth by a mother with the disease.
