The 8,000-square-foot space will be Pillar’s fifth Louisville-area CEC, the largest by far – and will serve as a model for innovative technology used to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The CEC will feature numerous day programs, including: 

  • Technology Lab

  • Embracing Creativity Art Studio

  • Music Therapy and Dramatic Arts

  • Resource Center

  • Fitness and Recreational Program

  • Culinary Training Kitchen 

  • Peggy’s Place Café

  • The Lounge

  • E3 Program with state-of-the-art sensory room to help with developing and engaging the senses

The Crestwood Station CEC located at 6206 Crestwood Station, will serve approximately 100 individuals, with 22 staff. Judge David Voegele, of Oldham County Fiscal Court, Crestwood’s outgoing mayor Dennis Deibel and newly elected mayor Jim Kramer, were among the invited guests on hand to celebrate.

The facility was built through the support of community partners, families of participants, and a Community Development Block Grant through the Kentucky Department of Local Government. Major funding also comes from the James Graham Brown Foundation, Frank Otte, the Gheens Foundation, the Kentucky Education Fund for Handicapped Children, the Mildred V. Horn Foundation, the Samuel Peyton Head Family Trust, and GE Appliances.
