Make Community Happen!
Special Thanks! The board and staff of the New Directions Housing Corporation wish to extend a huge thank you to The Cherokee Triangle Association and Fred Holden, chair of the plant booth, for the generous donation of unsold plants at the close of this year’s Art Fair. Vegetables and herbs were distributed among six different low-income or charitable gardens tended by residents and students. The flowers are brightening the grounds of the St. Benedict Early Childhood Development center. The recipients are most grateful.
New Directions supports families and individuals. We believe that the foundation of community is supporting each other and working together towards success. Our Resident Services program allows over 2,000 residents in our affordable housing (and the surround community!) to work one-on-one with staff in areas that support our four pillars of service: education, financial empowerment, healthcare provision and green initiatives. Our transitional shelter provides a haven of security and support to homeless families.
We need you. Financial resources are being cut at all levels, and now, more than ever, we need your help. Help us support families working towards a more secure future. Help us provide homework help to low-income children. Help us build strong, green gardens that provide access to sustainable, affordable produce. Help us ensure those at risk can access health resources.
Be a Dream Builder. Donate now. You can make a difference!

New Directions Housing Corporation serves Jefferson County, Kentucky, and Floyd and Clark counties in Southern Indiana. Its nonprofit community development strategies provide much-needed housing development, and today nearly 1,000 families of low income live in the nonprofit’s rental housing. A robust resident services strategy creatively meets resident needs and encourages progress through five Youth Learning Centers, four Lifelong Learning Centers and its homeless shelter, Heverin House, one of our nation’s first established transitional shelters designed to serve single-parent families moving toward permanent housing. The agency’s follow up strategy further supports shelter graduates to ensure that permanent housing is attained and sustained.
In addition, New Directions delivers the region’s most comprehensive efforts in Home Ownership Preservation, including the volunteer-driven Repair Affair which annually links over 1,500 caring volunteers to elder or disabled home owners needing home repair help. Community Building & Engagement initiatives include The Neighborhood Roundtable, our board’s advisory group comprised of grassroots leaders and neighborhood association members.
New Directions is a member agency of Metro United Way and NeighborWorks®America, and is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity.
