    Since 1986, St. John Center has been providing resources and services for those experiencing homelessness in the Louisville area and, as one of nine scattered-site permanent supportive housing providers in the city, currently provides housing and permanent case management for 93 formerly chronically homeless men.

    Sheehan Landing will be an 80,000 square foot facility with 80 one-bedroom apartments, 24-hour staffing and security, on-site case managers, behavioral health care services, legal services, and other services.  St. John Center has partnered with Phoenix Health Center for healthcare services, TARC for transportation, and Dare to Care for food support.

    "On behalf of the staff and board of directors of KHC, I want to congratulate LDG and the St. John's Center as they break ground on Sheehan Landing today," said Curtis Stauffer, managing director Housing Contract Administration at KHC, who spoke at the event. "This is truly a groundbreaking project for the Commonwealth as it will bring 80 units of evidence-based permanent supportive housing to Louisville. This development will serve Kentuckians experiencing homelessness who are most at risk and provide them with the supportive services they may need to stay in their homes."

    KHC provided $15 million in tax-exempt bond funding and just over $1 million in Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, which created over $8 million in equity. The project is being developed by LDG.
