First Lady Britainy Beshear is a long-time community volunteer and advocate for some of Kentucky’s most
vulnerable children. While always a mother
to Will (10) and Lila (9) first, she chooses to
use her additional time to help Kentucky’s
families and children. She served on the
board of directors for Maryhurst from 2013
to 2019, which provides help and hope for
abused and neglected young women and
girls. She is an active volunteer with the
Family Scholar House and works closely
with the staff and clients to end the cycle of
poverty and to empower single parents.
Her work with these organizations led
Mrs. Beshear to create the Hope Gallery,
located in the Office of the Attorney
General, to give a voice to Kentucky children
who face adversities and to highlight
art therapy programs.
Mrs. Beshear is also actively involved in
Will and Lila’s education, and volunteers in
their classrooms and after school programs.
Governor and Mrs. Beshear instill a passion
for volunteerism and responsibility for
community in both of their children. Following
her example, the Beshear children enjoy
volunteer activities with the Dare to Care
Food Bank in Louisville and God’s Pantry
The First Lady looks forward to using her
platform to improve the lives of children
across the Commonwealth.
