About: Kentucky River Foothills Development Council, Inc. (KRFDC) is devoted to reducing the prevalence of poverty—and its effects on everyone.  A Community Action Agency, KRFDC believes that communities must work together – in partnership – to enable all persons to live with dignity, responsibility and opportunity. To support this vision, KRFDC offers a myriad of services that promote stability and independence throughout the life cycle. These services begin with Head Start, continue through skills training programs and culminate with adult day services for the frail and elderly. In between, staff provide counseling, operate senior citizens centers, promote volunteer service, provide nutrition education, build houses for first time homeowners and help families in financial crisis. KRFDC has initiated many programs that have been proven effective in changing the lives of disadvantaged households. KRFDC primarily serves four central Kentucky counties. Our core service area is Clark, Estill, Madison, and Powell Counties. Additionally, Head Start serves Clark, Estill, Madison, Powell, Garrard, Jackson, Laurel, and Rockcastle Counties.  KRFDC is focused on improving the quality of life for all people in our service area. We are financially strong, engaged in our communities, and capable of providing necessary services to the many individuals and families in our core service region.
