Kemmerer Village in Assumption has been serving youth since 1914 in Shelby, Moultrie, and Christian Counties. Natalie Storm with Kemmerer Village says there are currently 175 children currently in care in different local foster homes with over 150 successful adoptions.
There are many ways to get involved with Kemmerer Village like becoming a volunteer to help with many processes on the grounds and, a larger undertaking, becoming a foster parent.
Donations are accepted at Kemmerer Village year-round but donations of toys, school supplies, and even monetary donations will be appreciated at Kemmerer Village, says Storm.
Storm says one of the main goals for Kemmerer Village is keeping families together as much as possible.
