 “Opening a door to independence for physically & mentally
challenged men & women in Central KY.”



The doors of Bob Brown House first opened in Lexington, Kentucky in 1975 as the  Bob W. Brown Housing for the Handicapped. The purpose was to provide an independent living experience for low income physically and mentally challenged men and women. Rents are based on income as most of our residents could not afford to live in traditional housing or other homes for the physically or mentally challenged. We offer a unique opportunity for physically and mentally challenged individuals to live independently and safely in a protected environment.  .


Our home was built by community volunteers whose goal was to provide a safe living environment for the physically and mentally challenged. Initially considered for the blind, it was soon expanded for individuals with other disabilities and it has been that way since. We have been in Lexington for more than 40 years and provided independent living for low income adults during this period.

In 2020, 24 more units were added in Independence Homes.
