About Good News Homes
Good News Homes was established in 2001 by Good News Shelter Corporation, a not-for-profit charitable organization created in 1998 by the local Southern Baptist District Organization (now known as the Oldham-Trimble Baptist Association). Good News began with a mobile home with one family and expanded in 2002 and 2005 to two transitional apartment buildings which were constructed with the help of approximately 80 members of the Baptist Builders, a group of volunteers from Oldham, Trimble, and surrounding counties. Now Good News Homes could house eight families. Further housing expanded in 2009 with the donation of the Wiano House in the Lakewood Valley area and the acquistion of RoseHaven Home for Womena nd Children which expanded housing to thirteen families in Good News Homes’ owned properties. Later, Good News Homes added a Rapid Rehousing rental assistance program for those who have no nighttime residence and are sleeping in places not meant for human habitation. Funding for construction and administration of the programs has come from contributions from the Mahan Foundation, the Peyton Samuel Head Family Trust, the Metro United Way, Oldham County Community Foundation, Oldham County Fiscal Court, Kentucky Housing Corporation grants, LaGrange Rotary Club, Ohio Valley United Charities, Zoeller Company, and many local churches, businesses, and individuals.
