NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) – Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children and Youth along with many state and local leaders broke ground this morning on a new $15 million youth center.
A special ceremony was held for the future youth center located at 1115 Ashgrove Road in Nicholasville.
The 31,000 square foot facility will provide many programs and opportunities for abused, neglected and abandoned children.
Built around their futures will be a new 12,500 square foot chapel and training center. The project will take a historic home on the property and turn it into an administrative space. It will also feature a state of the art program building, paddocks for equine therapy and an on campus learning facility.
“To be able to build a facility that will meet the needs of kids and for us to bring forth some of the resources so that we can do a new thing a reach out into the community is what’s really most exciting about it,” says Reverend Randy Coy, KyUMH CEO and President.
The entire project is expected to be completed at the end of July of 2017.
