LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI)— Today the Lafayette Transitional Housing Center displayed sketches for how the 14.3 million dollar project will play out.

The first floor is expected to offer different services to the homeless in the community, like an engagement center as well as a room for those in need who need a place to sleep. 

The second and third floor will have 40 single bedroom apartments and will be the first of its kind in Tippecanoe County. 

LTHC says they are 95% of the way toward their goal.

Jennifer Layton says the project's success requires help from the entire community.

Well, one of the things that we know is that it's really more than just housing," said Jennifer Layton, Executive Director for LTHC. " It's really about bringing support and helping people, not only in their homelessness today but so that they remained housed and that they are stable and that we do great things for the community".

While the housing center has reached 95% of their goal already. They are asking community members to help them reach 100%. 

There are donor gift levels that come with recognition depending on the amount donated. If you would like to donate you can do so here.

You can also mail a check to LTHC with the attention to Jennifer Shook at 615 North 18th Street Ste 102, Lafayette, IN 47904 and can email the Development Director for LTHC Jennifer Shook at  jshook@lthc.net
