I traveled through kentucky about 20 years ago. Is it still just as beautiful now as it was then? I thought the grass was really blue. You should be very proud of your state.

Thanks! Yes it is beautiful still yet.

To be technical. The grass is not actually blue. Bluegrass, which has green leaves, derives its name from the seed heads which are blue when the plant is allowed to grow to its natural height of two to three feet.

What sort of work do you do? The job market is maybe Kentucky's shortest suit. Yet, even that could be different for different fields.

Yep, saw yer other thread and readin about somebody else wantin to slough-off one of their "mentally ill" relatives to Bardstown from somewhere in the southwest usa (california?) seemed specially weird. Like whats the matter with their family that caint look after its own?

Meanwhile here at internal Ky level, say yer interested in starting "group home" - ye basically just *invest* welcome towards whoever comes along seekin help. Startin with yer familiars, neighbors and kin. Thats the attitude here. Every county includes section 8 housing easy to find. Rarely are these places even recognized at "state" level - yet operative at county level instaed. And this sorta welcome caint be bought or sold, specially at rural/country levels where tightest communities dwell.

Otherwise we dont put much credo into foreign state credentials so if yer thinkin go 'corporate' living off cushy state job then yer probly outa luck; Gov.Beshear's boned mental health budget allocations to the bone - a friend working at Central State Hospital mental health treatment facility has told me. LOL, thats how well these functions are handled at commonwealth/community level instaed - rarely are formal "institutionalization" state programs needed or wanted at county levels that tend to be more family/familiar based.

Am hoping this helps give you an idea of what we're about. Not much on this subject will be searchable at internet level, but if yer sincere about operating "group home" then reconnoitre ye might be entering more seemless society than what you're used to. Not alot of places with white coated providers assisting "consumers" and clients. More like am evolved symbiosis wherein communities permit NONE of their kin, kind and familiars to starve or go homeless.

I am not wierd and you don't know the whole story. There are lots of people with substance abuse problems in KY and the more qualified group homes the better.
