Pennyrile Allied Community Services, Inc. (PACS) is a private, non-profit agency chartered July 1, 1974 upon the submission of Articles of Incorporation to the Office of the Kentucky Secretary of State. Pennyrile Allied Community Services is a community action agency created under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 (Public Law 88-452) and authorized under the Kentucky Revised Statutes (K.R.S.) 273-410 et sequens, as revised under amendments by the 1982 General Assembly entitled "Community Action Agencies". The 1980 General Assembly amended Chapter 65 of the K.R.S. and specifically defined the agency as a "special district" of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Thus, PACS, as the term special district implies is a unique, limited purpose unit of government created for and involved with its specific aspect of public service. As a special district, PACS is fully accountable to the local Fiscal Courts and the general public to whom it must make an annual report of its budget, services, service area, executive officers and members of its governing Board of Directors.
The Pennyrile Allied Community Services, Inc. does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality origin, sex, age, religion or disability, and provides upon request, reasonable accomodation including auxiliary aids and services necessary or afford an individual with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in all services, programs and activities.
