Welcome House hosts Open House for remodeled Gardens of Greenup, supportive housing for families

Welcome House, Inc. has finished a $4.3 million dollar renovation of its Gardens of Greenup location at 1102 Greenup Street in Covington. The Gardens at Greenup is a supportive housing program for families.

This program offers affordable, stable housing consisting of 20 units containing 2, 3, and 4 bedroom apartments. It is designed to strengthen families by providing affordable, subsidized housing with on-site support services which include Service Coordination, education planning and support, career planning, financial literacy, life skills training, and childcare. The program is unique in setting a holistic standard for self-sufficiency, including personal growth development, family activities, and building a community of support.

“This renovation is almost a year in the making, we are so excited to have families move back into these apartments with bright, fresh, and new amenities,” says Danielle Amrine, CEO of Welcome House. “We have worked really hard to ensure that the families who live here have all they need when it comes to a safe, clean place to live.”

The project development team, which consisted of Welcome House, Model Property Development, POAH Communities, and Hub + Weber Architects, reimagined the historic buildings to include new appliances, windows, security cameras, heightened ADA compliance, HVAC, new floors and so much more.

“It’s important that we help our families stabilize and one of the ways we are trying to do that is by providing them with a fully-functional apartment,” explains Amrine. “We want our Gardens residents to not have to worry about where they live so they can focus on more important aspects of their lives.”

Funding for this project stemmed from various providers such as Kentucky Housing Corporation, Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing, KeyBank, United States Housing and Urban Development, Lument, Kentucky Heritage Council and National Park Service.

Welcome House will be hosting an Open House for the newly remodeled Gardens at Greenup on Monday, October 11 at 5 p.m. at 1102 Greenup St.
