Community Connections Group Inc. will attract, partner and coordinate resources for the community by promoting education, culture, and healthy lifestyles to encouraged and produce a positive change.
Our vision is to help those in the community reach their potential by providing training and resources. We plan to reach everyone in the community by providing programs for the youth, adults, and the elderly.
To help facilitate this vision we hold a Diversity Breakfast to introduce various members of our community to each other who normally wouldn't meet. During one of our Breakfasts, local artist Richard Sullivan, met representatives from Brown Forman. Now, one of his pieces has been featured on the Woodford Reserve Bottle for the Kentucky Derby in 2019 and 2020!
The Community Connections Group brings new voices to the table. We host local groups and forums that are focused on empowering individuals, families, and communities.

We are proud to feed needy families in our community. Our food program takes place every Thursday, while once a month we visit homeless camps to give out food and clothing to protect from the elements. To date we have already feed several families and are looking to feed many more.

MEET OUR PARTNERS
In our continuing efforts to make a change in the community, we started the Diversity Breakfast "Closing the 9th Street Divide". This program was started 7 years ago, encouraging our city to have hard conversations about racism in an effort to make this a better place to live.
The first breakfast we partnered with local News outlets to help ease the racial tensions that exist in our city and country.
