Community Involvement

At Bluegrass Land Title, we feel strongly about family, community and our local relationships. As members of this community we feel that it is our duty to support and give back to organizations, charities and people in need in our area. This is why we have developed “Giving Back to the Bluegrass.” Our company goal is to take a portion of our proceeds, and send the funds directly to charities that help support our community. During the Holiday season our staff and client base pick four or five charities in need. The buyer is also given an opportunity to donate to a charity of their choice.

From November 24th through the end of the year, our clients will get to chose one of these 5 local charities. 10% of the revenue that we collect from every transaction, will be donated to one of the following:

When a closing takes place at Bluegrass Land Title from November 25th, 2014 to December 31st, 2014, a portion of its proceeds will be donated to a charity. We have selected a few charities that we are passionate about and have given you the choice to decide where the funds are to be directed. Please choose the option below that corresponds with you preferred charity and join us in making a difference. Happy Holidays!

The Lexington Dream Factory is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to granting dreams of children ages 3-18 with critical or server chronic illnesses in Lexington, Eastern and Southern Kentucky. In 2013 our chapter will celebrate its 25th Anniversary and the over 700 dreams that we have granted. More than 90% of funds raised by, and donated to, the Lexington Dream Factory go directly to granting local dreams like trips to Disney World, shopping sprees, meeting celebrities, or anything the child can dream!

The Hope Center

Our mission is to care for homeless and at-risk persons by providing life-sustaining and life-rebuilding services that are comprehensive and address the underlying causes of homelessness. In addition to food, shelter and clothing for the homeless, the Hope Center also provides residential drug and alcohol recovery programs for both men and women, a program for homeless veterans, housing for clients struggling with mental illness, an employment program and transitional housing units. The Hope Center Men’s Emergency Shelter typically sleeps 200 men per night, and overall, HopeCenter programs provide food, shelter and clothing to more than 800 men, women and children every single night. We help. We heal. We give hope.

Lexington Habitat for Humanity

lhh.jpgSince 1986, Lexington Habitat for Humanity, an ecumenical Christian nonprofit, has helped almost 400 Lexington families. Families transition from substandard or subsidized housing into simple, decent, affordable homes. Partner families participate in extensive homeownership education classes and also invest hundreds of sweat equity hours of their own labor into building their Habitat home. Partner families purchase their homes at no profit and at zero percent interest. Together we are building a better tomorrow for families in need of a decent place to live, for neighborhoods in need of revitalization and for each of us as we seek to serve our neighbors and our community.

Hospice

Hospice of the Bluegrass cares for more than 700 patients daily in 32 counties in central, northern and southeastern Kentucky. The Hospice approach is holistic in nature and features a team of professionals that includes:

Physicians who specialize in managing pain and other bothersome symptoms such as depression, anxiety, nausea, and shortness of breath; nurses who visit the patient in their residence to ensure the patient is comfortable and educate the caregiver on what to expect and how to care for the patient; social workers who provide counseling to the patient and family and connect them to any available resources in the community; chaplains who provide spiritual support to the patient and family; certified nursing assistants who assist with bathing, dressing and other activities of daily living; volunteers who provide practical support to the patient and family such as transportation to appointments and respite care for the caregiver; and bereavement counselors who provide individual and group counseling services to the family after a patient dies. No patient is ever denied services because of an inability to pay.
