Creating Housing Solutions

Building New Residences

Quality housing directly impacts Kentuckians’ overall health and well-being and creates a feeling of belonging and security in a community. Through counseling, education, and affordable lending, Community Ventures helps residents access affordable, quality housing or achieve their dream of homeownership.

According to a recent housing assessment study by the University of Kentucky, Fulton County tied with Fayette County as the county with the 13th highest demand for housing among Kentucky’s 120 counties.

To create more housing options for residents of Western Kentucky, Community Ventures is partnering with community agencies and organizations to build new, affordable homes in Fulton.

During the fall of 2023, Community Ventures and our partners celebrated the completion of the first CV-financed and developed home built in Fulton. The house was completed in four months and is the first new construction residence built in Fulton in ten years.

In March 2024, Community Ventures and the Rural Partner Network hosted a Housing and Resource Fair in Fulton to help residents access resources to help them become homeowners, find jobs, and discover other assistance available in their community.

In April, Community Ventures will build two new affordable homes in Fulton in two days, using structural insulated panels (SIP) construction technology. To learn more owning a SIP home, contact Brenda Weaver at

Repairing Existing Homes

In addition to helping residents achieve their homeownership dreams, Community Ventures assists Kentuckians like Jarvis Jones with repairing or restoring existing homes.

Community Ventures worked with Mr. Jones to connect him with resources and funding to aid him in fixing the damage to his roof and floors during severe storms.
