Boy Scouts of America

The Lincoln Heritage Council is one of the oldest local Councils serving both urban and rural areas in the United States. Their first charter was granted under the name “Louisville Area Council” in 1912. Later they applied for and received permission to change the name of the Council to “Old Kentucky Home Council”, which remained the name until 1992. In 1992, the George Rogers Clark Area Council, based out of New Albany, Indiana, chose to join efforts with their neighbor, the Old Kentucky Home Council . The councils merged, and on January 1, 1993, the Lincoln Heritage Council officially came to be.

On April 1, 2012 the Lincoln Heritage Council welcomed 39 counties in western Kentucky, Illinois and Tennessee formally served by the Shawnee Trails Council. The territory became the Western Service Area in the Lincoln Heritage Council.

The Council has thirteen geographical districts and four service areas.The Lincoln Heritage Council #205 is composed of 64 counties in Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana and Tennessee.

Clarity Solutions for Women

Abortion Alternatives You had plans… A baby wasn’t one of them.

If you’ve recently taken a pregnancy test or missed a period, you may be concerned about an unplanned pregnancy.  You have so many questions – what are my options?  Do my parents have to find out?  Can I continue my education? What about me?

Clarity is here to help.

Our center offers lab quality pregnancy tests, accurate medical information on pregnancy and abortion, and compassionate support during this critical time in your life.

If your pregnancy is confirmed, we also offer complimentary ultrasound exams to determine if your pregnancy is viable.  (A natural miscarriage occurs in about 1 in 4-5 of all early pregnancies.)   An ultrasound will also tell you how far along you are and rule out a tubal pregnancy (a life-threatening medical emergency).  It’s important that you learn as much as possible to come to an informed and confident decision.

We’re here to listen.

We’ll guard your privacy.  We won’t judge you.  All our services are free because we don’t want to profit from your problem.

Disaster Relief

The Red Cross responds to approximately 70,000 disasters in the United States every year, ranging from home fires that affect a single family to hurricanes that affect tens of thousands, to earthquakes that impact millions.

Although the Red Cross is not a government agency, it is an essential part of the response when disaster strikes. We work in partnership with other agencies and organizations that provide services to disaster victims.
