An Affordable Housing Project For Medically Vulnerable Citizens Coming To Lexington
Lexington will become the home of an affordable housing complex focused on meeting the needs of the medically vulnerable, including those with HIV. A groundbreaking for Stonewall Terrace took place Tuesday.
Jon Parker is the director of AVOL Kentucky, which has provided services to people with HIV for three decades. “We want Stonewall Terrace to be a place where people feel comfortable and where they can call home. So, we’re going to create a stigma free, inclusive, supportive environment on this location. Being neighborly will be the norm,” said Parker.
Parker said access to social services and connections to medical care will take place on site.
Financing for the 26-unit apartment project includes funds from federal, state, and local sources. It’s being constructed on property off Versailles Road. Stonewall Terrace could see its first residents by the end of the year.
