Young Family Foundation
The Young Family Foundation was established in 2013 by Valerie Marie Young. It received non-profit status from the Internal Revenue Service as a private operating foundation in 2014. Valerie was a practitioner of many disciplines of alternative healing. She spent the last two years of her life creating “A Living Sanctuary” on her farm in Oldham County, Kentucky as her legacy to the community of healers and non-profit organizations that she was a part of and supported. She also wanted her legacy to be available to those who may benefit from different forms of healing. The foundation operates the house and grounds that compose Valaterra as a place in the community where alternative, complementary and integrative healing programs may be offered, as well as a place of retreat and learning.
