Henderson Co. church looking for volunteers for special needs program

Posted: Updated:
HENDERSON CO., KY (WFIE) -

A church in Henderson County is looking for volunteers to help with a new program.

Pastor Bob Whitter at the Baskett Advanced Baptist Church says many people who have special needs children don't feel comfortable going to church.

Whitter says they feel people won't understand their child and that they get too disruptive.

Whitter, along with other church members, are forming a program to help create a safe environment for those with special needs children, come to church.

"There are families out there that just don't come because they're afraid. We go to meetings every month and people tell me all the time and we don't have anything here at our church to offer them until now," says Whitter.

The church is looking for qualified volunteers.

If you're interested, contact them at 270-827-1481.
