South Louisville Community Ministries is a local nonprofit that relies on locals to give! We simply cannot do this work without you. Help someone directly by donating diapers, rice, $10, or by connecting us to your Kroger Rewards Card! One small act of kindness can go a long way.


General donations

Make a donation directly to SLCM to help us survive and thrive. Your support will help keep the doors open and allow us to expand our programs and serve more people.

Neighborhood fund

Your monthly donation is transformed into the very thing that will help someone move toward a safe, healthy and happy home. It will help cover the comparatively minimal cost of these crucial items and time-sensitive bills. SLCM has had to turn away almost half of the people who come to us asking for emergency assistance due to the lack of resources, but through this fund, we’ll be able to open our doors even wider.
