A house for a family that was homeless was dedicated Monday through a public-private partnership with the Lexington Housing Authority, the Home Builders Association of Lexington and the Community Action Council of Lexington.
The partners took a dilapidated, uninhabitable house on Wilgus Avenue and transformed it. Funding for the $90,000 project was provided by the city’s Office of Affordable Housing. Ongoing support for the family is provided by Community Action through a grant from the city’s Office of Homelessness.
“It was another opportunity to give back to the community,” said Todd Johnson, executive vice president of the Home Builders Association.
