The Cain Center for the Disabled is a private, non-profit organization, which promotes and provides accessible, affordable housing in Greater Louisville for persons with disabilities and their families.
The Cain Center for the Disabled has been serving the Louisville Kentucky metro area since 1987. The Jim Cain Home was the first development constructed in 1987 for up to 9 adults living in a co-ed dormitory style shared living environment. In 1988 the Cain-Bingham Apartments (8 units) were constructed for residents that desired their own 1 or 2 bedroom apartment. In 1996 the Brown-MacKinnon Apartments (24 units) were completed consisting of five 1 bedroom, fifteen 2 bedroom, and four 3 bedroom apartments. The demand for 3 bedroom apartments was limited so the Mullins-Roberts (1998), Hagan-Trabue (1999), and Anderson Place (2001) Apartments were constructed having only 1 and 2 bedroom units for a total of 10 units each. Our latest developments are Thompson-Woodlief apartments (2004) having ten 1-bedroom and six 2-bedroom units (two of the one bedroom units are studio apartments) and Jude's Place.
Currently there are 100+ people on our waiting list and we are developing another apartment site (Thompson-Woodleaf Apartments) which will consist of 1 and 2 bedroom units for a total of 18 additional units. To get on our waiting list, you must first fill out a pre-application form, sign it, and mail it to us:
