Community Ventures helps people own homes and start businesses because we believe in people’s dreams. From affordable financing to large-scale community projects, our areas of focus offer the opportunity to dramatically improve the quality of life for people across Kentucky.
Central to the mission of Community Ventures is to improve the quality of life for Kentuckians through asset building. Community Ventures has launched a holistic approach to community development in the Russell Neighborhood. With $8.5 million currently invested, the revitalization plan includes the facilitation of small business growth, job creation, construction of safe and affordable housing, and providing healthy food alternatives to local residents. We have brought our different lines of business and expertise to bear in one neighborhood to see the dramatic changes that can occur when all facets of community development are considered.
With this strategy in mind, the first, critical step in this process of redevelopment is the creation of Chef Space. For more information about Community Ventures’ services and projects, visit the website www.cvky.org.
