About Zora's Cradle

The mission of Zora’s Cradle is to address the gaps in maternity health services that discriminate against individuals from lower socio-economic demographics in Kentucky and result in higher maternal and child mortality rates, by providing access to financial and health supports pre- and post-pregnancy. Our agency philosophy is “Helping Mothers To Restore, Redeem, and Thrive”.

How Zora's Cradle Started:

The non-profit agency’s namesake, Zora, was born in June 2014. Zora was delivered preterm (6 months gestation) via emergency C-section due to her mother’s limited community-based resources, advocacy, social support, and housing options. Zora passed away 2 days following her birth. Zora’s Cradle strives to ensure that expectant mothers of all walks of life are supported throughout their pregnancy, with each newborn being welcomed into a loving environment.

We currently provide a plethora of services such as housing assistance, behavioral therapy, case management, and independent living skills to the community.

We also offer outpatient behavioral health services and classes (individual and group) to children, teens, and adults of all backgrounds. We operate a Milk Depot


that promotes community health by expanding the safe use of human milk for all babies, especially premature and ill infants. The Milk Depot is located within our Perinatal Resource Center, which offers free supplies (i.e. diapers, cribs, breast pumps, infant clothing) to all individuals/families in need, regardless of their income.

Our Values

Zora’s Cradle proudly celebrates equity, diversity, and inclusiveness. We embrace these pillars of greatness as vital to healthy individuals and healthy communities. We believe that equity, diversity, and inclusion are an active operation that requires constant commitment to promote healthy people, healthy communities, and the overall success of present and future generations. The values of Zora’s Cradle are realized through or by fostering a culture of open-mindedness, empathy, and inclusiveness among individuals and groups. We are continuously building a community comprised of members from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and life experiences.
