Make Community Happen!
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.
