Community Ministries was founded in the basement of Bowman Memorial United Methodist Church in 1976 in an effort to meet basic human needs. Over the years, we have evolved into a community-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization empowering people to lead self-sufficient lives.

Hazard Perry County Community Ministries, Inc., (HPCCM) abides by Title VI of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Kentucky Civil Rights Act of 1966. To that end, we strive for equal participation among all protected classes under these Acts. Program-specific information is as follows:
The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, national origin, or religion. The Kentucky General Assembly later broadened the law to prohibit discrimination in housing based on disability, gender, and familial status. Discrimination based on sexual orientation is also forbidden in Covington, Lexington, Louisville, and Vicco. HPCCM also does not discriminate based on age.
On February 3, 2012, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued a final rule that prohibits discrimination on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status in regards to housing programs assisted by HUD or subject to a mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration. HPCCM fully abides by this final rule.
If you feel that you have been a victim of housing discrimination, please contact the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights at 332 W. Broadway, Heyburn Building, Suite 700; Louisville, KY 40202; (800) 292-5566; (502) 595-4084 (TDD Line); www.kchr.ky.gov.
We participate in the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program administered by the Kentucky Department of Education. Meals will be served at no separate charge to enrolled participants at the center. In accordance with Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, these institutions are prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. To file a complaint of discrimination, write USDA, Director, Office of Civil Rights, Room 326-W, Whitten Building, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C. 20250-9410 or call (202) 720-5964 (voice and TDD). USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
In addition, HPCCM complies with Section 504, which provides that no qualified individual with a disability should, only by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. To file a complaint, please contact the Executive Director.
