Community Care Campus

A central location for unhoused individuals to access a variety of services including a family shelter, permanent affordable housing and more. In partnership with Louisville Metro, VOA was chosen to manage the campus, create a master plan, and facilitate community engagement.

According to the Coalition for the Homeless, in 2021 nearly 11,000 individuals experienced homelessness in Jefferson County in 2023, an issue which has persisted and grown over the last several years.

The Community Care Campus will serve as a central location for unhoused residents to access emergency housing services, including a family shelter and permanent, affordable housing.

Volunteers of America Mid-States was selected to manage the campus, including the creation of a master plan, and to facilitate community engagement. We plan to relocate our headquarters (HQ) to this space with upwards of 75 employees.
