Going Green Kits Available

Thanks to the Community Grant from the Louisville Sustainability Council, Kentucky IPL now has several beginner level energy-efficiency kits to give out to faith communities! If your faith community suffers from the financial drain of heating and cooling, aging buildings, or is looking to be more energy efficient, you can reach out to our Outreach Coordinator (VISTA) Audrie for help on getting a kit. The kit includes several items such as LED light bulbs, outlet sealers, power strips, and more. Kits are still available for Louisville-based congregations and will be given on a first-come, first serve basis. Email Audrie at 


Congratulating Audrie on her past year of service

This past year Audrie served as our Homes for All AmeriCorps VISTA as an Outreach Coordinator. Audrie has been a huge help to Kentucky IPL during a time of transition and we are grateful to her for the past year of service. Audrie's last day as a VISTA member will be Aug.16.  Audrie has decided to go to graduate school and has accepted an internship at the Kentucky Department of Education for the fall. You can reach her at audrie@kentuckyipl.org.
