Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) takes great pride in partnering with organizations throughout the Commonwealth to address the diverse housing needs of our citizens. Many of the projects KHC helps to fund target housing resources to certain populations with specific housing needs – multifamily housing affordable for working families, supportive housing for persons with disabilities, permanent housing to move people from homelessness, energy efficiency and weatherization to make homes healthier and more affordable, repairs and rehabilitation to improve safety for homeowners, new construction to help new homebuyers begin to build equity, and so many more.
Teachers have a really demanding job, not just meeting the diverse needs of children and young people all day, but working long hours, juggling administrative work, grading papers and projects, and managing expectations from students, parents, peers, and administrators. Teachers have a heart to reach children by helping them learn, create, grow, and invest in their dreams.
