The Fayette Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon cutting for a number of local non-profit organizations.

Advo-Kids CASA, Association of Village Pride, and Fayette FACTOR all strive to assist the citizens of Fayette County through focused outreach and service. These organizations have relocated to a shared office space to reflect the shared vision of their mission statements.

Advo-Kids CASA of Fayette (advo-kidscasa.org) is a group of trained volunteers who advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children within the juvenile court system.

The mission of the Association of Village PRIDE, Inc. (avpride.org) is to assist Fayette County youth to become conscious and productive citizens of society who will make significant contributions to their community.

Fayette FACTOR (fayettefactor.org) forms a collaborative membership of public and private groups that share a similar mission; coordinating strategies to strengthen our community by meeting needs with resources.
