Brighton Center Receives $250,000 Donation from Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. Foundation

Brighton Center Receives $250,000 Donation from Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. Foundation to Assist Displaced Residents in Newport and Covington

(Newport, Kentucky – February 14, 2023) Brighton Center, Inc. received a donation from Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. Foundation to assist displaced residents in Newport and Covington. Brighton Center, along with several other local Safety Net Alliance of Northern Kentucky provider agencies, has been assisting families who have been displaced from their homes to navigate their sudden need for relocation. Families that are displaced do not have the disposable income to cover unplanned moving expenses as they are often living paycheck to paycheck.

Residents at Victoria Square Apartments, one of Newport’s last housing communities with affordable rates, were given notices to vacate this summer, with very little time to identify alternate housing. Current residents, many of whom have called Victoria Square home for decades, have been unable to find nearby housing, and when they do it is close to double what they were currently paying. With the recent closure of City Heights in Covington, the area has experienced an increase in individuals being displaced with nowhere to turn. Within the past year, Northern Kentucky has lost more than 800 housing units that are affordable and attainable for working families.
