HCM is an interfaith, non-profit organization uniting the efforts and energies of [21] congregations to support and empower our Highlands neighbors in need. We serve residents in zip codes 40204 and 40205 and, as a proud part of the Association of Community Ministries and the sister ministries it represents, we work to create positive change for Louisville at large.

For more than four decades, HCM has been a collaboration of concerned neighbors helping to enhance the community at large. While our roots stretch back into the late 1960s, HCM was officially incorporated
  in 1970 to represent a network of interfaith congregations. Through HCM, these congregations come together to offer the broadest possible resources to all segments of our community—children, families, seniors and those in need.

These resources are coordinated through our full-time ministries. While each ministry has a unique mission and focus, their efforts support the larger goals of our organization. These ministries have been organized through the combined efforts and financial support of interfaith congregations in the Highlands, as well as community grants and the neighbors
  and local businesses who provide personal donations. In this way, our Highlands residents can directly invest in the long-term community development that’s closest to home.

Throughout our long legacy of community development, our approach has remained the same. We believe in a dynamic, evolving, shared-responsibility approach to community support, and our programs have been designed to best facilitate this approach. We create the interfaith unity that drives action—and creates a stronger, more empowered community experience for all.

Our mission is to build community through programs and activities that promote human and spiritual growth.

Our vision is to create an inclusive community that continuously enriches the lives of those we serve—because by enriching them, we enrich one another.
