The Kentucky Department of Corrections and the state's Department of Protection and Advocacy are releasing a statewide directory for inmates with disabilities aimed at helping those released from prison find food, housing, clothing assistance and employment.
The directory was compiled county-by-county. All 120 Kentucky counties are included in the directory, which will be provided to parole officers, re-entry coordinators and made available at state prisons.
Department of Protection and Permanency official Jan Powe told the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer that it took a year to compile the directory.
The directory covers everything from housing and food to where to get counseling, a college degree or HIV testing. If a county didn't have a specific service, a state number is included so the person can find a service in another county.
Viewers with disabilities can get assistance accessing this station's FCC Public Inspection File by contacting the station with the information listed below. Questions or concerns relating to the accessibility of the FCC's online public file system should be directed to the FCC at 888-225-5322, 888-835-5322 (TTY), or email@example.com.
