KORE Announces $1.4M for Recovery Housing to Support Kentuckians Seeking Treatment for Substance Use Disorders

Frankfort, Ky. - Eight facilities around the state will receive federal grants from the Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE) to help create or modernize affordable, quality, recovery housing units, Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) officials announced today during a press conference in Louisville. The awarded projects will serve men and women in recovery, including pregnant and parenting mothers.

KORE recovery housing grant recipients include: Kentucky River Community Care and FAHE in Letcher County, Serenity Apartments in Fayette County, Centerstone in Louisville, Isaiah House in Fayette County, Volunteers of America in Louisville, Shepherds House in Fayette County, and Transitions in Kenton County. Each facility will be awarded up to $180,000.

Recovery housing refers to a range of housing models that create mutually-supportive communities where individuals improve their physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being and gain skills and resources to sustain their recovery.

Isaiah House is a Grassroots Partner of SOAR. For more information about the services they offer, check out their website.
