Thanks in part to a $1.3 million award by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, Jacob’s Village has expanded its neighborhood to offer accessible and affordable housing for older adults as well as people with functional disabilities.
“For the past seven years, we have served adults with functional disabilities by providing homes, daily living assistance, and other supports services,” said Cheryl Kuchna, President/CEO of Jacob’s Village. “With this award, we will be tripling the number of individuals we serve by welcoming older adults, as well as people with disabilities, to our community while helping address a critical need for more affordable and accessible housing in western Vanderburgh and Posey counties.”
On Sunday, February 17th from 1-3:00 p.m. Jacob’s Village will host an open house, free to the public. Light refreshments will be served and tours of the new apartments will be given. Location?
The neighborhood expansion includes 12 new handicap-accessible apartments alongside our current homes. Jacob’s Village is responding to the unique housing needs of low- and moderate-income disabled and senior adults who want to age at home in a neighborhood community that supports their independence, fosters friendship and offers diverse programming. The apartments will be designed for energy efficiency and offer modern amenities and private entrances. Apartments are currently ready for occupancy.
