New Paducah Cooperative Ministriy Executive Director Lacy Boling stands for a portrait with outgoing director Heidi Suhrheinrich in the organization’s food pantry Friday afternoon. Suhrheinrich is retiring after 24 years with the nonprofit.

When Heidi Suhrheinrich came on board as executive director of Paducah Cooperative Ministry 24 years ago, the organization’s headquarters comprised “a little house on South Sixth Street” across from a former school that now houses Paducah Head Start.

Within ten years, the nonprofit moved into its current headquarters in the former American Legion building, and has since built its Fresh Start Village to help women struggling to find housing.
