Cabbage Patch Settlement House 100th Anniversary

The Cabbage Patch Settlement House, a nonprofit Christian organization working to promote self-reliance in children and families, celebrated its centennial in 2010.

In this story, Executive Director Rev. Tracy Holladay discusses the organization and people who have been helped by the Cabbage Patch House share their experiences.

The Cabbage Patch Settlement House was founded by Louise Marshall 1910. The organization was colorfully named after Miss Marshall's neighborhood, and was built up through the work and dedication of Louise's community, church and family. The Cabbage Patch Settlement House was Miss Marshall's lifelong labor of love.

The Cabbage Patch Settlement House has served hundreds of thousands of inner-city children over the years. Included among the Patch's alumni are: an NFL Super Bowl coach, a former city alderman, community leaders, teachers, coaches, firefighters and police officers, and Cabbage Patch staff members, to list a few.

Also in this program, "Louisville Life" profiles the inspiring life of local author Alice Hegan Rice, whose book "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch" brought the plight of at-risk children into the national spotlight. Visit Et Cetera for details.
