    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Kentucky has a growing problem of neglected, abused and troubled youth. According to Jim Shields, of “Boys and Girls Haven,” Louisville, numbers of homeless children in the state—some 66,000—are staggering and shameful, and these examples show the tremendous needs in our communities to help address this problem. Shields cited a recent report by the Child Fatality and Near Fatality External Review Panel, Kentucky Human Rights Commission.
