Program Description:

HCM is an interfaith, non-profit organization uniting the efforts and energies of 20 congregations to support and empower our Highlands neighbors in need. 

We serve residents in zip codes 40204 and 40205 (and with the closure of the South East Area Ministry we also serve a portion of 40218). As a proud part of the Association of Community Ministries and the sister ministries it represents, we work to create positive change for Louisville at large. 

For more than five decades, HCM has been a collaboration of concerned neighbors helping to enhance the community at large. While our roots stretch back into the late 1960s, HCM was officially incorporated in 1970 to represent a network of interfaith congregations. Through HCM, these congregations come together to offer the broadest possible resources to all segments of our community—children, families, and seniors.

We are supported through the combined efforts and financial support of an interfaith network of congregations in the Highlands, governmental agencies, community grants and the personal donations of neighbors and local businesses.

Throughout our long legacy of community development, our approach has remained the same. We believe in a dynamic, evolving, shared-responsibility approach to supporting others. Our interfaith unity drives action—and creates a stronger, more empowered community experience for all.
