With 1,000 families on a waiting list for services, Louisville-based Family Scholar House Inc. plans to break ground late this year on a fifth campus.
The new facility off Cane Run Road will add 64 more apartment units.
The nonprofit Family Scholar House offers housing and other support services to single-parent college students and their children. Its mission is to help those students escape poverty by providing a support network while they pursue college degrees and then careers.
The five-acre complex is part of a larger 34-acre housing development proposed by Louisville developer Marian Development Group LLC, which has partnered with affordable housing developer LDG Development of Louisville on the nearly $63 million project.
