Hazard, Ky. A house on Upper Second Creek Road will soon be torn down to make room for new apartments.
Kentucky River Regional Care is behind the apartments. The complex is set to include three units: one one-bedroom, one two-bedroom, and one three-bedroom.
Families with dependent children and people with serious mental illness will have priority for these apartments.
"They may become homeless for some unknown reason," said Sheila Allen, KRCC Vice President of Development. "They may be leaving family where they couldn't get along with their family members, or just not be able to afford regular market rents."
KRCC hopes to build 20 more units on a nearby property. They expect to complete these apartments in March, 2014
