GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—The Lafayette Transitional Housing Center was named Nicest Place in Indiana for 2019.

The group was nominated by several people and was selected by the publication, Reader's Digest.

Reader's Digest uses the contest to find places to restore faith in humanity.

According to Reader's Digest and the contest rules, there were more than 1,000 places nominated.

A panel of judges chose one finalist to represent each state.

Executive Director for LTHC Jennifer Layton said this honor says a lot about Greater Lafayette as a community.

"We've done this work for thirty years now and helping people that are experiencing homelessness," said Layton. "And part of our value is to really make sure that we do it with dignity and with kindness and respect to our guest. And it's paying off."
