Potter Children's Home is growing with the help of Golfer Kenny Perry and some Bowling Green residents.

Potter Children's Home provides families and children with shelter, guidance and support during troubled times.

Single parents are also welcomed by Potter Children's Home through a program called S.P.A.R.K. which stands for Single Parents Alliance for Raising Kids.

S.P.A.R.K. allows families a second chance while recovering from tragedies like death, desertion or divorce.

At a breakfast Wednesday morning, March 28, 2007, at the Club at Olde Stone Golfer Kenny Perry announced his support for the expansion of potter's S.P.A.R.K. units.

"Potter teaches Christianity, gives them a place to live, gives them hope for the future and to me that's very important," Perry said.

The expansion includes additional single family units and five Residential Group Care Units. Residential Group Care Units provide homes and house parents for children ages six to 18 who wouldn't otherwise have a family life.

The money raised would also go towards renovating the gym and utility upgrades.

The project will cost an estimated $3.5 million. Thousands of dollars from this morning's breakfast will also go toward the expansion project.
