Creekside, located in Pippa Passes, Kentucky.
Creekside is a women’s residential treatment facility. Nestled between the mountainous terrain of Knott County, the community is rich with Native American and coal mining history.
The residential facility sits a short drive down the road from Alice Lloyd College, a private work college – meaning students graduate with little to no debt. Alice Spencer Geddes Lloyd came to Eastern Kentucky at a time when educational opportunities lacked in Appalachia. One of her first endeavors was creating Ivis Community Center which provided health care, educational services, and agricultural improvements to the region.
