Our primary mission is to help older adults and people with disabilities to live with dignity and choices in their homes and communities for as long as possible.
The Purchase Area Development District (PADD) Workforce Development Department provides employers with qualified employees to improve the economic stability of the region. PADD’S responsibilities center around: (1) coordinating the operations and services of the Kentucky Career Center System, and (2) providing job search and training assistance to adults, dislocated workers and youth.
Commodity & Food Bank
The Commodity and Food Bank Programs provide food and non-food products to underprivileged individuals and families in the Purchase Area. Products are distributed through non-profit organizations such as needlines, food pantries, and community kitchens. These programs are funded federally through the US Department of Agriculture, shared maintenance donations from participating organizations, and public and private donations. We utilize three programs to supplement food and non-food items to the needy.
