Highland Presbyterian Church works with and supports organizations in Louisville and the region including:
Kentucky Refugee Ministries (KRM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing resettlement services to refugees through faith- and agency-based co-sponsorship in order to promote self-sufficiency and successful integration into our community. KRM is committed to offering access to community resources and opportunities and to promoting awareness of diversity for the benefit of the whole community.

Highlands Community Ministries (HCM) – HCM is an ecumenical non-profit organization uniting the efforts and energies of 24 local congregations to support and empower our Highlands neighbors in need. They 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.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. They build simple and affordable homes in partnership with those in need of decent housing. Habitat sells houses to qualified families at no profit with zero interest mortgage loans. Each summer, Presbyterian Churches from the Mid-Kentucky Presbytery come together for a Presbyterian Build.
The Cabbage Patch has a mission to equip and empower at-risk children, youth, and their families, to be self-sufficient by helping them maximize their economic, educational, emotional, moral, physical, social and spiritual potential.
Metro-Housing Coalition exists to bring together the Louisville community’s private and public resources to provide equitable, accessible housing opportunities for all people through advocacy, public education and support for affordable housing providers.
Kentucky Race Track Chaplaincy at Churchill Downs. Located in Louisville, Churchill Downs is the home of the famous Kentucky Derby. It is also home to a year-round, interdenominational ministry for racetrack workers. Their focus is on the “backside” of Churchill Downs where the racehorses are stabled. On the backside you’ll find a dormitory for workers, a dining hall, learning center, recreation center and other services designed to support track workers. Significant progress was made toward meeting workers’ needs with the opening in June 2006 of Christ Chapel, tucked among the barns on the backside.
