Kentucky and Southern Indiana Stroke Association (Kentuckiana Stroke Association)5-stars

“My mom had a stroke in 2008, and shortly after I got involved with KSISA. This organization is very close to my heart, and the work they do makes such a huge difference in the lives of so many. Stroke affects everyone differently, but no matter the effects, your life is changed forever. The support system that KSISA provides is vital for those living with stroke, along with friends and family, to move forward.” –Smith603


Volunteers at a conference CMConnect“CMConnect is a great ministry that I have been privileged to be served by, and am now honored to be part of their team. I love their heart for children and their desire for all kids to come to know God through connecting, serving, and advancing children’s workers around the world. They offer several different training opportunities throughout the year and great friendships are built through those trainings.” –amandak
