Amanda’s Center Amanda’s Center for Local Resources was opened in October 2012. It was named for Amanda C. L. Ross whose life was tragically cut short by an act of domestic violence. Amanda was a tireless crusader for victims’ rights and wanted nothing more than to use her life to help other victims in their time of need. In this spirit, Amanda’s family and friends have partnered with the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff to create a place that will act as both safe place and a guide to those dealing with domestic trauma. Since 2012, thousands of domestic violence victims have started their journey to freedom through Amanda Center. If you are a victim of domestic violence, please call the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff at (859) 252-1771 #ShinetheLight

Domestic violence can be so easy for people to ignore, as it often happens without any witnesses and it is sometimes easier not to get involved. Yet, by publicly speaking out against domestic violence, together we can challenge attitudes towards violence in the home and show that domestic violence is a crime and not merely unacceptable.

We are committed to end bullying in our community. Through the McGruff program we visit schools all over Fayette County to spread the message of saying No to bullying. We hope you join us to stand up against bullying.

With a positive attitude we experience pleasant and happy feelings. This brings brightness to the eyes, more energy, and happiness. Our whole being broadcasts good will, happiness and success.

National Good Neighbor Day is observed annually on September 28. This day was created to acknowledge and celebrate the importance of a good neighbor. It is a blessing to have a good neighbor, but it is even a greater thing to BE a good neighbor.Good neighbors often become friends. They watch out for each other, lend a helping hand and are there for advice when asked. Neighbors offer that cup of sugar when we are short, collect our mail when we are on vacation, watch our homes and sometimes watch our children and our pets. Simply put, being a good neighbor makes good neighbors and develops lifelong friendships. National Good Neighbor Day was created in the early 1970s by Becky Mattson of Lakeside, Montana. In 1978, United States President Jimmy Carter issued Proclamation 4601: “As our Nation struggles to build friendship among the peoples of this world, we are mindful that the noblest human concern is concern for others. Understanding, love and respect build cohesive families and communities. The same bonds cement our Nation and the nations of the world. For most of us, this sense of community is nurtured and expressed in our neighborhoods where we give each other an opportunity to share and feel part of a larger family…I call upon the people of the United States and interested groups and organizations to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.” To celebrate National Good Neighbor Day, do something nice for your neighbor today. #GoodNeighborDay.
