    Brooklawn Child and Family Services was founded as an orphanage in 1851 for the children of Louisville’s growing German immigrant population, Brooklawn provides comprehensive care, treatment, and education for children and youth with serious emotional disturbances and is one of the largest agencies of its kind in the state of Kentucky. Children admitted to Brooklawn have often been victims of severe abuse, neglect or other trauma, and oftentimes, they have been separated not only from their birth family, but have had the additional trauma of rejections from adoptive or foster parents. Today, their residential programs serve over 100 boys and girls ages 5 to 18 from across the Commonwealth of Kentucky without regard to race, creed or national origin. Brooklawn is one of the larger non-profit health and human services organizations in the community.

    About Bella Portaro

    Happiness Cultivator. Blogger. Writer. Social Media and PR Maven. Dreamer. Louisville Lover. Blogger at Bella of Louisville; a lifestyle blog. A lifestyle is- by definition to me - the way in which one chooses to live their life. As I’ve entered into this chapter / book of my life with a strong understanding of who I am, lifestyle has become about the art of living well. This idea goes beyond creating a beautiful home and investing in my wardrobe. Living well means being kind, being good company, contributing to your community, and becoming a person of substance and grace. If designing a life full of substance and grace isn’t aspirational, I don’t know what else is. I love writing about events and things to do in Louisville. I hope you enjoy my posts and connect with me on social media!
