Kilgore partners with West End School
Kilgore Samaritan Counseling Center is excited to continue its partnership for the second year with the West End School (WES) to offer mental health professional services for their existing summer program. We provide assistance to the WES staff in the admission process by conducting family interviews, administering, scoring and interpreting Behavior Assessment Scales for Children (BASC) to parents, staff and students and provide clinical impressions to administration during the admission process. The end result is to increase the admission rate of those young men who have the emotional potential of succeeding in the program.
This continued support for the West End School is made possible by the Gheens Foundation and Good Samaritan Foundation, Inc. a ministry of the Kentucky Annual conference of the United Methodist Church.
WES West End School is a free, private, college preparatory, Pre-K through Eighth school for young men. Admission is open to boys entering Pre-K, Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade and Sixth Grade who are on free or reduced lunch, are capable of doing academic work at grade level or above, and who would benefit from a safe environment and high expectations.
Kilgore continues to expand its community outreach by supporting the clergy and their congregation, and area ministries.
We are pleased to assist the Eastern Area Ministries in offering support for their community, which covers the northeast portion of the county, by offering workshops and seminars relating to “What do you do when life throws you a curveball”, “How to build confidence and self-esteem”, and “How to stay positive in a negative situation”. Contact us at 502.327.4622 or Eastern Area Ministries at 502.426.2824 for future events.
Located on Terry Road, Southwest Community Ministries (SWCM) is supported by over 35 churches in southwest Jefferson County. This vital community ministry serves many of these churches’ members and to support SWCM, Kilgore will be providing a series of seminars to address many topics such as addiction and depression and will help in looking for warnings in mental health wellness.
