Hundreds of children converged on Madison County Monday in an attempt to make a difference in central Kentucky, Monday.

The group called Kentucky Changers is made up of people from all over the state. This week, their goal is to make homes across Madison County a better place to live.

Heatherly Paschall, and her group from Memorial Baptist Church, came to Madison County all the way from Murray to participate in Kentucky Changers’ mission this week. She’s been participating with the organization for over a decade now, and can’t help from coming back.

I've been doing it 11 years, and there's a lot of people here that have been coming here a lot longer than I have, even back in the 90's when it started,” Paschall said. “So, just to be with all of these people and to see the impact that it's had, after so many years and decades, is really incredible.”

At a different job site, Alex Price was working with a team to build a handicap accessible deck for a girl in a wheelchair. While he’s excited to help others, he’s also glad to experience the community that Kentucky Changers creates.

"One of the biggest things is that the Kentucky Changers group, they become a family to you and so a lot of these people here I have met even before they were on my crew. I've met them in the years past, and just getting to come together as a body of believers, it's amazing to see that."

There are about 250 kids across Madison County helping to complete these projects. They will work through the rest of the week.

Kentucky Changers will host a reveal event Friday for the group to showcase before and after pictures of their projects.
