Independent Living Program

New Beginnings offers independent apartments or bedrooms in shared-living homes in several apartment units throughout Fayette County, including four one bedroom four-plexes on Ryan Circle, a two-bedroom duplex on Fair Oaks Drive, eight one-bedroom apartments on Etawah Drive and a four bedroom shared-living home on Jesselin Drive. Each of these units are targeted to serve individuals with a serious mental illness who can live independently in the community. Residents pay 30% of their adjusted monthly income for rent and the remaining portion is subsidized primarily through block grant funding awarded to the agency from the Lexington Housing Authority. Although New Beginnings is the owner and landlord for these units, residents are not required to participate in any services, including those provided by our agency. If a resident does elect to participate in the agency’s Housing Support Services, a Housing Support Specialist will be assigned and will assist with maintaining stable housing, development of a person-centered plan, assistance with transportation, referrals to community resources and other assistance as needed.
