Cooper & Friedman Associate Attorney Ashley Ervin serves as board member for C.H.O.I.C.E., Inc. (Children Have Options in Choosing Experiences).
This local nonprofit group was founded in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1987. C.H.O.I.C.E. Inc. works to steer local at-risk youth toward making positive life choices through guidance, counseling and mentorships with Jefferson County Public Schools. C.H.O.I.C.E. Inc. currently offers programming to students at a number of Jefferson County Public Schools including elementary, middle and high. According to the organization’s website, current Louisville-area schools served include: Noe Middle School, Fern Creek Traditional High School, Iroquois High School, Watterson Elementary and Whitney Young Elementary.
The organization’s mission is: “…to provide the needed services that will allow youths and adolescents to reach their maximum potential via a positive, healthy drug-free lifestyle.”
Explaining why she decided to get involved with C.H.O.I.C.E. Inc., Louisville Attorney Ashley Ervin states:
“I decided to get involved with C.H.O.I.C.E., Inc. because I wanted to give back to the Louisville community. I am from Iowa and came to Louisville for law school. I loved it so much that I decided to stay here, start my career here, and eventually raise my children here. This city has given me so much that I knew I had to give back. My involvement with C.H.O.I.C.E., Inc. and the children we serve allows me to make a difference in the community both today and for years to come.”
