LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- City Life Shawnee, an after-school program and more, in what was a run-down building on the corner of 41st and Market Street, hope its model for faith-based positivity will change the reputation of crime in west Louisville neighborhoods.

The program launches in January, although about 15 kids are already involved in weekly dinners and bible study. It's under the umbrella of Kentuckiana Youth in Christ, and there are 160 City Life neighborhood programs around the country and 100 more around the world.

There will be mentoring, bible study, and community service opportunities six nights a week, from 2:30-6:30 p.m.
